Species text
Doratura impudica is a pale brown leafhopper with greenish iridescence, found on grasses on sand dunes. It was known in Britain only from the north Norfolk coast (Kirby 1992). It was collected in Essex by P.R. Harvey at Colne Point and Crabknowe Spit in 1990 and 1991. There are very limited areas of suitable habitat in Essex, so it is likely to be genuinely rare in the county. References
