Trioza centranthi

This is the distinctive leaf roll gall of the bug Trioza centranthi. Noticed this on red valerian growing from the margins of a car park in Magor a couple of weeks ago. Returned last Saturday to take some photos. This bug has just a handful of records in Britain but is probably under-recorded.Checking various recording websites its seems this is the first record for the vice county of Monmouthshire.
