Yellow bugs - Heliothrips haemorrhoidalis
Alameda County, California, USA
November 12, 2009
Today I got photos of the mystery bugs in better light. Some were on each side of the leaf where the eggshells are, mostly doing nothing. Normally this leaf is shaded. When sunlight hit the bugs, they started walking.
There were thrips elsewhere on the leaf and generally in the vicinity. Might these be immature thrips? Just guessing from the shape.
