Is it possible to identify this Psyllid (maybe Cacopsylla spec.) from February 25, 2021, which was sitting on a tree trunk (Platanus) here in Leipzig (Saxony, Germany)?
Best regards,

Hi Maik, looks good for a very dark male Cacopsylla, which is a complicated genus. My guess would be C. affinis due to the slightly yellowish membrane - C. melanoneura's is transparent.

Greetings, Eric

Hi Eric,
it's great that the genre is correct and good to know that to know that Cacopsylla affinis is possible.
Thank you for the quick help and best regards,

OK, thanks Roger, now if someone would just ID the fly I would be happy.

FTAO - Gordon; Please make sure that you use lower case, because attachments with extensions in upper case (capitals) are rejected. So sayeth GOD AKA Paul. Cool

A file called "Fly01a" has an UPPERCASE "F" Gordon. The site takes a dim view of UPPERCASE "'F's"!! awkward

OK, it has started working now, no idea what was going on.
