Heliria cristata is a species of treehoppers in the family Membracidae. A very distinctive, stunning species with a double-lobed pronotal crest, characteristic of this species; the frontal lobe is higher than the back one and projects forward. Adults range in color from brownish to a light green color and have a very broad front of the pronotum, extending well to the side of the eyes.
