Psyllid adult

Creiss longipennis

Description:

I first thought this was a small seed stuck in web. At about 8mm long this pink-orange coloured insect resembles a hopper but with longer antennae and a couple of other different features.

Habitat:

Resting on a wall in a nature reserve adjoining a national park.

This looks like a psyllid to me. The wings have less branching in my opinion. Either way you can still call them plant lice.
