  • Leafhoppers (Hemiptera Cicadellidae Typhlocybinae) of the genus Eupteryx are important pests on medical and culinary herbs including sage (Salvia officinalis L., Lamiaceae), causing severe economic damage. Individuals of Eupteryx decemnotata Rey and Eupteryx melissae Curtis show a modified genital morphology at two geographically distant populations in Germany (Bonn and Gottingen). Typical female and male sexual characters are merged. In another species of Typhlocybinae a similar intersexual… CONTINUE READING
