A new froghopper survey
Despite being fairly common, there are various aspects of its life history and ecology which are unclear - does it have only one food plant, for example? The adult is expected to emerge in the last two weeks of May and survive only into June but climate change may have altered this.
There are several similar species on the continent, at least one of which is a pest on pine trees, so it may be worth examining more closely any unusually shaped or marked specimens.
We need the usual facts (where, when, how many) but as much other detail as possible: which plants, what habitat, activity etc. Records may be logged through the web site
