Empoasca decipiens Paoli A green leafhopper

Infestations of this generally common leaf-hopper occur on fruit trees and many other hosts, including potato; the insects cause the foliage to become speckled or more generally discoloured. Heavily infested leaves on fruit trees often become silvery and such foliage is sometimes thought to be suffering from silver-

leaf disease. Unlike many other genera, species of Empoasca overwinter in the adult stage, individuals typically sheltering on conifers or on other evergreen plants such as Hedera helix. Adults of E. decipiens are about 3 mm long and mainly green, with whitish markings on the head and thorax.
