Arthaldeus species are greenish-yellow deltocephaline leafhoppers. There are two British species, both of which have two short dark streaks at the tip of the vertex.
In A. pascuellus, the dark area of the face has no longitudinal pale streak (unlike the closely related A. striifrons). The forewing cells are usually greenish but sometimes darker edged.
A common and widespread species in dry grasslands.
