Yellow "Greenfly"

Original posted on "Calderdale Wildlife" by Philip
Anybody know the species?

This eight of an inch long yellow (greenfly?) crawled across my book pages as I was reading. A lovely colour but not one I've seen before. Does anyone know what it is?  - Philip

It looks a bit like a "Whitefly" to me, or at least one of them, & yes I know the wings are not showing white but they are folded downwards. These don't fair too well in the cold. It may simply be a yellow Greenfly which is suffering from the cooling weather.

Not a Whitefly likely a Juvenile Froghopper of the Family Cercopidae. Possibly from your Garden if you were in it reading ?
