    These were attractive thin-walled urn-shaped galls that appeared to be about 10 to 12 mm tall. The apical openings through which the adults would have emerged had jagged edges which were a deep pink. This colour bled into the pale green bodies and bases of the galls. Spotted on the upper surface of eucalyptus leaves - Gum tree species not known.

    These small dry star-bursts of psyllid galls looked like rusted metal flowers stuck to the upper surfaces of gum leaves. These eruptions looked a lot "neater" than some of the galls induced by these little hemipterans. Spotted on what looked like Silver-leaf Stringy Bark ( E.cinerea) in a reserve.

      • Leuba Ridgway  Thank you Reilly. I am fairly certain that it is Schedotrioza genus. Not sure of the species.
