Rose Leafhopper (Edwardsiana rosae) – After deadheading a few spent rose blooms I checked them and any leaves before disgarding them. It’s really amazing what you can find by close scrutiny. I found this one on the back of a leaf, a fine looking leafhopper. They are around 4 mm (5/32″) long, and most of the time go completely unnoticed.
