Hi, everyone! A bug landed on my lap that I'd never seen before! My research on the internet made me think that it's an Asian Hackberry Aphid! Are they usually found in the UK?!

Hi everyone! Last summer, whilst I was sat in my neighbours garden, in Merseyside, a bug that I mistook for a piece of fluff gentely falling, landed on to my lap! I was really amazed, when all of a sudden, it began to walk! It was maybe about the size of a small grain of rice, and had a pale, baby blue like coloured body and legs, and white cotton like fluffall along its back! It was really beautiful, and I had never seen one before in my life, so filled with curiosity, I searched the web, and found images of ASIAN HACKBERRY APHIDS, that have led me to believe, that this is what it was, yet I can';t find anything saying that they are found in the UK, only in the USA and Asia, and that they are a recent discovery! Can anyone educate me, as to if they have already been found in the UK!

 

THANK YOU SO MUCH!! XXX
