the systematics of leafhopper nymphs are not well studied. identification can be impossible for certain groups without association with an adult. images are generally moved from this page if they can be identified to tribal placement or more specific (so individuals clearly belonging to certain subfamilies will often remain here until a more specific ID can be obtained).
