Eucalypt leaves containing psyllids

We had a great excursion today looking at eucalypts to the south of
Ballarat. At the  first stop some curly leaves were investigated and contained psyllids. These insects live under a covering called a lerp. At home I plugged in the trusty $50 digital microscope (from Aldi) and looked at the tiny insect.

  1. Great magnified image of psyllid. I must take my digital microscope out of the box and use it!
