Identification

Can anyone help me identify this little chap I found on lavender in my garden? He was roughly 4mm with a blue bristly tail. Thank you!nymph 019.JPG

    Hello there. This looks like the nymph of a leaf hopper of some sort. Sorry I'm not being more precise.

    Ok I'll have one more stab at it. Issus Coleoptratus nymph at mid instar. Not uncommon across England less common in Scotland and Wales. The bristles are made of a wax extruded by the nymph.
