The Black and Red Froghopper spends its youth in a moist blob. The larva feed on roots of plants and not on leaves or stems. Therefore the larvae are difficult to detect. There are a number of closely related and black and red hoppers showing very similar features so it is often difficult to exactly indentify. The male is approximately 910 millimetres in length and the female circa 8-10 millimetres.



The Black and Red Froghopper is also known as the Red and Black Froghopper, the Black and Red Leafhopper and the Red and Black Leafhopper.It lives in various wooded and open habitats, grassland, meadows.
