Triozoida limbata (Enderlein, 1918) - (guava psyllid)
This psyllid is a pest of guava in South and Central America. Infestations cause the leaves to curl, turn yellow or reddish, later necrotic and finally drop prematurely. Especially new shoots are vulnerable to attacks. The damage reduces growth and fruit production on the trees. Nymphs are covered with wax filaments. The adults are about 2 mm long with the forewing vein Cu1b being lined with black.
