Psyllid riding Curculionid

Aoplocnemis clavipes


An unlikely hitchhiker. Some type of weevil got disturbed while mating (by me :-) and later I noticed it had a type of psillid attached to it's side. Psyllid is about 4mm and weevil is about 20mm.


On native 'sword grass' leaves in a local national park.


Yet to search for either ID... maybe these two should not come in contact normally ?? Aoplocnemis rufipes? Aoplocnemis clavipes?
