Gum tree hopper

Description:

Tiny tree hopper nymphs - about 5mm long. Although it might be the same species as some spotted before I haven't seen the striped thorax. The attendant ants are also a species never seen filling this role. They were also much smaller than most attendant ant species with the eucalyptus leaf hoppers.

Habitat:

On eucalyptus sapling in a local nature reserve.

Notes:

Yet to research these... banded abdomens are familiar but striped thorax not. Eurymelinae ->?
