Nephotettix cincticeps (Uhler, 1896)
The leafhopper is a common rice pest in eastern Asia, especially in the northern parts and causes stunting in infested fields. More importantly, it is a vector of rice viruses (e.g. Rice dwarf virus) and phytoplasmas. Between rice seasons, it will colonize different grasses and other cereals like wheat or barley.
The males are 4-4½ mm and the females 5-5½ mm long. The colour is green, but the tip of the forewings is black in males. There is a black stripe across the anterior part of the vertex.
N. cincticeps and the closely related Nephotettix virescens often occur together.
