Ball, E.D. 1907. The genus Eutettix with especial reference to E. tenella, the beet leaf-hopper: a taxonomic, biologic, and economic study of the North American forms. Proceedings of the Davenport Academy of Natural Sciences. (12): 27-94.

During the season of 1905 a small leaf hopper (Enlettix tenella) appeared in immense numbers in the beet fields of Utah and the surrounding region. Investigations were at once started to discover its life history and the best means of combating it. As the season progressed a large number of the beets were found to be affected with a peculiar condition, called "curly-leaf," which resulted in an immense damage to the crop.
