NORWICH: Cacopsylla fulguralis

Early May 2022

On my walk back from Catton Park I noticed a hedge that appeared to be flecked with tiny insects. Upon closer inspection they were clearly psyllids, but not one that I recognised. Fortunately (and unlike many of them) the wing pattern was quite distinctive and I was able to identify them as the non-native species Eleagnus Sucker, Cacopsylla fulguralis.
