    The Cryptolaemus montrouzieri latva is very like a mealy bug hence the common name, but I still lean towars yours being an actual mealybug in the genus Pseudococcus

    Thank you Ken Harris, puzzled as Ken Walker identifies something that looks very similar as Cryptolaemus montrouzieri a little while back ?

    I could not get a clean sharp shot of this as it was moving and there was a breeze, it was feeding on a Hovea acutifolia and there were ants and what looked like aphids
