Psyllid species on BugGuide but not yet on iNat

iNat's representation of psyllid diversity continues to grow, currently represented by 211 species globally and 118 species in North America (about a third of the US fauna). But there are still holes, especially in central/eastern USA as well as Alaska, and 31 nearctic species are still absent on iNat despite being present on BugGuide. Let's fill the gaps!

Aphalaridae
Aphalara monticola - western Canada
Aphalara persicaria - eastern USA

Craspedolepta subpunctata - Canada and Alaska on Chamaenerion angustifolium
Gyropsylla ilecis - conspicuous gall inducers on Ilex vomitoria from FL to TX. It's possible the galls may already be on iNat but unidentified
