Psyllid bug?

I take it the insect at right is a Psyllid bug? I cannot match it on the British Bugs website. It is 2.8 mm long by calculation, excluding wings, and is on Agrimony. It was stationary. The small chap at left is 0.7 mm long, and was moving slowly away from the larger insect. Is this an aphid?

    The 'small chap' is a globular springtail - I don't know which species though (Sminthurus?)

    Quick reply. I will see if I can find out more about the psyllid (because that's what it is). The one on the left is a springtail (Collembola: Symphypleona).

    Well I will show my hand - I'm reckoning that it 'could' be Triozoa urticae, the image below 'borrowed' from www.britishbugs.org.uk/

    accredited to and  copyright of Shane Farrell.

     

    And bottom is a cropped version of Rellis' original - looks like it could be snap to me.

     

    Let's see what Paul digs up though.
