  3. Jeff Triplett  Interesting. I did a search on google scholar and found the following sentence "As a family the Triozidae feed on a broad range of dicotyledonous host plants with the notable exception of the Leguminoseae". see A new genus and ten new species of jumping plant lice (Hemiptera: Triozidae) from Allocasuarina (Casuarinaceae) in Australia, Taylor et al 2011.

  4. Jeff Triplett  Australian faunal directory also does not show acacia as a host for this family
