Gall forming psyllid and parasite

Schedotrioza sp (Hemipteran bug)


Green galls growing profusely on this eucalyptus open out like a flower when the bug is ready to vacate. The dissected gall reveals the tiny blind, wingless bug, and occasionally a wasp parasite.


Many thousands of these green galls are growing on two large old growth eucalyptus trees.


Several galls contain a maggot type tenant (pic 4,5 & 6) possibly an ichneumon wasp that was spotted earlier.
