Eupteryx aurata
Eupteryx aurata is a species in the order Hemiptera, the suborder Auchenorrhyncha, the infraorder Cicadomorpha, the superfamily Membracoidea, the family leafhoppers (Cicadellidae), the subfamily Typhlocybinae, and the genus Eupteryx. Eupteryx aurata are widespread and common in Europe. In Central Europe they produce 2 new generations a year, in Southern Europe, 3 or more.
Eupteryx aurata prefer habitats with rich vegetation. This also includes water edges with herbaceous vegetation. They feed by sucking plant juices from single cells of leaf tissue (mesophyll). Tiny white spots can then be seen on the leaves as the saliva of Eupteryx aurata destroys chlorophyll. Their preferred food plants include nettles (Urtica), Labiatae (Lamiaceae) and potato (Solanum tuberosum).
After mating, the fertilized females lay their eggs in plant tissue. The larvae of Eupteryx aurata develop into adult cicada in 5 stages. The body structure of the larvae is roughly equivalent to that of the adults. In Central Europe, the 2nd generation each year overwinter as eggs.
