A new species of leafhopper, Empoa malini, has been found causing decided losses on apple in central Ohio. It has been the most abundant species on apple during the past two years. It closely resembles E. rosae with which it has apparently been confused. The color is more yellow than E. rosae but the easiest method of distinguishing them is by the terminal processes on the oedagus.
