Comment: Erythridula is a very challenging genus to identify to species level, as there can be variation in pattern and coloration within species, and many species resemble one another. Dissecting specimens is the the only way to determine species for many cases. This page represents individuals that could represent one of many species. There are dozens of Erythridula that are plainly marked with coloration typical of the genus: yellow to red wing and body markings. Problem is that these patterns, and slight differences in them, apply to multiple species; variation within a species makes further complicates the challenge. The only definitive way to determine a species level ID for one of these hoppers that fall into the 'coloration typical for genus' category is to dissect a male and look at the genitalia. Therefore, in the absence of dissection, photographed individuals will be placed here.

To look at the many Erythridula species that have similar coloration, scroll through this page: 3I.
