Cacopsylla is a large and difficult genus with genal cones and a pterostigma; many species cannot be reliably identified without examining the genitalia.
C. sorbi is one of a large number of species that are broadly greenish (at least in early summer). Very similar to C. mali but with generally longer antennae; identification relies on microscopic examination of the genitalia.
A common species on Rowan and sometimes other Sorbus across the UK.
