Craspedolepta subpunctata
Family: Aphalaridae

One of several psyllid genera which lack genal cones. The dark marks on the whitish semi-opaque wings are restricted to the junctions of the marginal vein with other veins. The body is pale green.

Uncommon, and found largely in southern England, but occurs at least as far north as Yorkshire. The host plant is Rosebay Willowherb Chamaenerion angustifolium.
