Lurid Arthropods

The attached images were taken this morning in the upper reaches of our block. The wee animals were dining on a small Eucalyptus meliodora (aka Yellow Box).













I have been told, by Dr Roger Farrow, "They are a sap-feeding bug, a species of Eurymela (Hemiptera:Eurymelidae). Veru sociable, pften ant attended, won't harm the host tree."

Impressive.
