Leafhoppers

Family Cicadellidae


This enormous family is a particular favorite of ours, and we have more photos of it on the American Insects site than of any other family. For this reason, this is the first family on the site to have subfamily galleries. Click on one of the images below to go to a gallery of thumbnails of that subfamily.  Two subfamilies lack a gallery because we have only one image each from those groups—these are Macropsinae and Evacanthinae.
