Leafhoppers in the Idiocerinae are large and often highly patterned, with a very broad, short vertex. The group is large and often very difficult to identify. Almost all are associated with poplars or willows.
This species has one unique feature that allows definitive identification: the vertex and pronotum have fine transverse ridges. There are also fine wrinkles over the forewing membrane. The genae are rather furry, but the overall colouring of the species is not particularly distinctive.
Locally distributed on black and lombardy poplars in southern England.
Adult: August to October
Length 6-7 mm
