I used the IC IPM website to identify this as a red gum psyllid (Glycaspis brimblecombei). I didn’t see any on What’s That Bug?, so I thought this would make a good addition.
Oh, did I kill him by removing the lerp?
Thanks so much for sending us your photo. We don’t know much about the invasive, exotic Red Gum Lerp Psyllid. We did find a nice UC Riverside Center for Invasive Species Fact Sheet on the species.
