Nymphs - Psylla carpinicola

Nymphs - Psylla carpinicola
Pennypack Restoration Trust, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, USA
May 9, 2011
Size: 1-2 mm
This small tree had lots of these hoppers. Each was heavily coated with secretions and hiding at the base of a leaf node. They almost looked like part of the plant. They may be the same or related to

The host plant may be the same also, although that one was tentatively IDed as hazel alder. This one is ironwood. The tree trunk is very distinctive.

Moved
Moved from Psyllidae to new guide page. Based on the plant ID, this is the only option.

Of course
Moved from Planthoppers.
I had some similar ones IDed last year. How careless! Thanks.
Silly me! (Or should I say psilly me :)

Those antennae
don't look terribly planthopperish to me... I'm wondering if these might be Psyllid nymphs instead?
