User's notes

The images show a mixture of psyllid eggs, nymphs with white filaments, and green coloured, winged adults. The adults were less than 3mm overall length. The nymphs were giving off droplets of sugary secretions. In the final image an immature lacewing in the lower left-hand corner was wandering around looking for prey.
