scale - Eulecanium kunoense - Male
San Leandro, Alameda County, California, USA
March 17, 2007
Size: <2mm
Found on top of a female ... Since I haven't seen other scale species on this small apple tree that I've been watching for 3 years, I'm assuming it's the same species as the females. This male was photographed on a toothpick point.

My neighbor is not too pleased with these scales. There was a big population explosion of them this spring.

ScaleNet has a photo of a male which looks similar aside from different lighting. (I guess a lot of male scales look like this though...)
