A new leafhopper on the oregano plants this morning. I am still seeing lots of Eupteryx melissae and the occasional E. decemnotata on the asters but this one looks quite different! From the description on British Bugs, particularly regarding the pattern on the scutellum, I would say that this E. stachydearum.
