Eucalyptus Leaf Galls

Schedotrioza sp.


These were attractive thin-walled urn-shaped galls that appeared to be about 10 to 12 mm tall. The apical openings through which the adults would have emerged had jagged edges which were a deep pink. This colour bled into the pale green bodies and bases of the galls.


Spotted on the upper surface of eucalyptus leaves - species not known.


These galls are formed by small hemipterans called psyllids, often referred to as plant lice. The adult emerges out of the galls by erupting through the apex forming the star-shape margins.
