I'm no expert, but the host--and the information, including photos, that I've found online--seems consistent with this species. Expert confirmation would be appreciated.

I sent specimens to David McCoy (Los Indios, Texas) and after he prepared slide mounts and examined them carefully, using a compound microscope, concluded that they were indeed Aulacaspis yasumatsui.
