Green Gum Leafhopper - Eurymeloides pulchra

Family Cicadellidae, Eurymelinae, Eurymelini    

This page contains pictures and information about Green Gum-leafhoppers that we found in the Brisbane area, Queensland, Australia.
 
Body length 10mm
 
This Gum-leafhopper is relatively large in size. Adults were black in colour with two transverse white lines on wings. The front line is usually broken into two part. The hind line is narrowly wedge-shaped. The pattern of the two lines are highly variable.

End August 2009, we found this Gum-leafhopper on young gum trees in a garden in Sinnamon Park. Where, at the same time, we also found the other Gum-leafhopper species - The Common Jassid

We also found the nymphs on the same host plants.

Pictures were taken in Karawatha Forest on Jun 2007. We found them once on a smooth bark gumtree trunk. There were a few of them there.

We listed three Eurymeloides species in this Gum-leafhopper page. However, they look very similar and we may have mixed up their pictures.

They are quite common in Brisbane eucalypts forests.
