Psyllopsis species all feed on Ash, and have a broadly similar colouring, needing some care to separate them.
P. discepans has less intense forewing markings than P. fraxini, but in a similar pattern. The abdomen is often greenish, although the dorsum of the thorax is typically bold yellow and black.
Common on Ash (Fraxinus spp.) across Britain, but more so in the north.
Adult: June to October
Length 3-4 mm
