Is this a Doratura stylata? There are 3 spots on the face.

The 3 spots on the margin of the head, and the black band across the face (not seen in this photo) are both characteristic of this European leafhopper.

Now that I know what to look for and where I can find these, I'll go back and look for an adult. Thanks for the ID and also with the treehopper expert.
