Mosaic leafhopper, Heesch, Netherlands Introduced. One of the cool things of participating in moth week is that I discover all kinds of by-catch, other insects I didn&#039;t know to live in my garden. Such as this gorgeous Mosaic leafhopper. It is tiny, a mere 6mm in size. It is sitting on a stitched chair where I used a ruler to measure on segment at 4mm in length.<br />

  1. Such beautiful patterns/colors! Posted one year ago
    1. Thank you, and I agree. This species has two common names: Japanese leafhopper and Mosaic leafhopper. I used the latter as it is much more descriptive. Posted one year ago
    2. Also you should realize that this discovery was initiated by you ;) I simply never would have known this lives in our garden. Posted one year ago
