Possible immature scale or mealybug? - Ceroplastes
Martinez, Contra Costa County, California, USA
October 4, 2010
Size: 1/32" - 1/16"
Discovered these on an escallonia bush in my yard. They only appear on the veins of the leaf surface, not on the underside. There is also some type of scale on the branches, and I found one mealybug too. Ants are crawling all over.
