Psylloidea  - Pachypsylla venusta

Psylloidea - Pachypsylla venusta
Travis County, Texas, USA
February 26, 2018
Size: 4 millimeters

Moved from Psylloidea. The large size distinguishes this Pachypsylla from its congeners.

Moved from ID Request.

Thank you
Thank you very much for the ID. Is this possibly a Hackberry Psyllids (Pachypsylla) ? Or do I need to get some top and front shots if I see one of these again ?

Pachypsylla would be my guess
The experts will be able to say for sure, and may be able to give you a species.
