Abstract<i>Clastoptera atrapicata</i> n. sp. (Homoptera: Cercopidae) is described from sage brush (<i>Artemisia tridentata</i> Nutt) in central British Columbia and Oregon. This species is closely allied to <i>C. brunnea</i> Ball, and, like it. exhibits considerable variation in colour pattern of the face. The ovipositor and colour varieties are illustrated and compared with those of its related species.
