Remember that psyllids are called jumping plant lice - so they are usually seen with their short and powerful hind legs tucked under their body, ready to jump. Aphids crawl (or fly), so they have easily visible long hind legs. Also aphids tend to fold their antennae back, but psyllid antennae stick forward.
