Based on misassociated specimens on the website Sharpshooter Leafhoppers of the World
, there has been some confusion on how to differentiate this species from G. dohrni
. This confusion likely originates from (Oman, 1949), where G. aurora
was listed as a jr. synonym of G. dohrni
. The two species have distinctly different markings and only aurora
is found in the United States.
