Pachypsylla venusta teneral - Pachypsylla venusta

Pachypsylla venusta teneral - Pachypsylla venusta
Charlotte, Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, USA
January 15, 2019
Size: body 5.3 mm
I don't have the host plant, but I believe I have some galls. Browsing BugGuide I see that Acizzia jamatonica seems close.

Pachysilla venusta
I just figured this out. This individual emerged from a collection of Hackberry Petiole Galls I collected, and had just apparently eclosed when I noticed it, hence the pale color. Or it's defective in some way. Today I noticed two others (in a vial with the galls) with the normal coloration. I'm quite certain this is Pachysilla venusta.

If you're certain of the ID...
...you are free to move the images to the genus or species page. However, if there is any doubt at all, please leave them here for expert review.

Thanks!

 
How to move
Chris Mallory just verified this as P. venusta in my record that I put on iNaturalist. I assume he'll get to this at some point and move it to species level, but it seems as though you're saying I could do that as well. If so, how do I do it? I did my best at searching the website for directions, but could not find how. Seems risky to allow non-editors to move specimens to species level.

 
You can find...
...instructions here. Scroll down to How do I move my image from "ID Request" to the guide, to another spot in the guide, or to "Frass"?
