White clam lerp insect.

Hyalinaspis sp


This small green hemipteran bug was hiding under its sugary shell (lerp). Another one nearby (pic 3 and 4) seems to have left home , leaving its penultimate exuvia behind.


Lerp #17


Similar to this one but the bug was different (older?)

Yes, I was never sure if they leave their lerp as winged adults. Female gall bugs never do. It seems that maybe these do. I will have to contain one to find out.
