Glycaspis brimblecombei 
An Australian species associated with eucalyptus; previously recorded from AZ but this is the first actual record from the state that I've seen, and the first record of this Australian subfamily for AZ on bugguide. Note the very long genal processes which sets it apart from most native north American psyllids

 
Outstanding!
I thought that I had swept it from pines, but now I remember that I also took a few sweeps from an adjacent eucalyptus tree. That's great to know to look for more specimens in the future and hopefully do a better job with the images.
