Galls of Victoria

Galls of Victoria

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.
