Moved
Moved from Spondyliaspidinae.

Moved
Moved from Ctenarytaina. Upon review, this is inconsistent with all recorded north america Ctenarytaina; while the venation is similar, the female genital segment is far too short. Instead, this may be the Lemongum Psyllid Cryptoneossa triangula, but while structurally similar the coloration is quite peculiar. Alternatively, maybe it's none of the above, and it's a new introduced australian eucalypt psyllid, which wouldn't surprise me at all. Will try to photograph and collect a male before further judgment.
