Moved
Moved from Psylloidea.

parasitized
The primary parasitoid for RGLPs is Psyllaephagus bliteus, an introduced biological control. Psyllaephagus seems to be pretty host specific, and several different species have been introduced to control various Australian psyllids. I've found that sometimes I can predict which lerps have been parasitized by looking for lerps that are covered in a black sooty mold.

 
Great information and insights!
Thank you Chris!
