Nigma Puella – New Garden Species

Whilst looking to get a positive ID on the Green Aphids on our hazel tree we came across this tiny little guy under the stereo microscope. It was found on the underside of a hazel leaf within its flat web structure. It was very sensitive to the microscopes light so we took a quick snap and put the fella back in the garden.

Not an especially well distributed species, mostly confirmed to the south of the country. But I suspect very under recorded due to its size. Welcome to the garden!
