Leafhopper - Spangbergiella vulnerata

Leafhopper - Spangbergiella vulnerata
Austin, Travis County, Texas, USA
July 15, 2015
Size: ~4mm

Moved from Spangbergiella.

Moved from Leafhoppers.

Spangbergiella sp. (poss S. vulnerata)
The messy wing-veins, several aspects of the color-scheme, the flattened head-shape, and the relative boldness of the oblique stripes on the head all point fairly decisively S. vulnerata. If someone can confirm this, we can add a new state to BugGuide's range map for this species.

Spangbergiella sp. (poss. S. vulnerata)
Your help was invaluable.
The specimen's length (only ~4mm) is a little disconcerting, but I estimated it without using a ruler.
Many thanks -


My pleasure!
