Leafhopper - Evacanthus interruptus

Leafhopper - Evacanthus interruptus
Edmundston, Madawaska County, New Brunswick, Canada
July 22, 2010
Which family and species could that be??


Evacanthus interruptus
a dead specimen - the legs are folded under it, which is why it isn't obviously a leafhopper

Moved from Cicadoidea.

I'm really want Dr. Hamilton to get a look at this one, and I know this is one of the places he checks regularly. Moved just to be safe.

The closest match I found was to the introduced European species Evacanthus interruptus. According to Andy Hamilton, it has been found in Newfoundland. See comment here.

I'll be interest to see what Dr. Hamilton thinks.

Thank Ken,it look very much l
Thank Ken,it look very much like the one on the link you send.
It must be rare in my region, this is the only specimen I have seen yet.

introduced species
first found in NB in 1979

Moved from ID Request.
