APHID CAUGHT ON MULBERRY LEAVES OBSERVED UNDER FOLDSCOPE

Aphid is also called plant louse, greenfly, are small (1/8 inch long), sap sucking, soft-bodied insects (order Homoptera), often found feeding in clusters on new growth.

The  antennae at the tip of the head are clearly visible and cornicles (a pair of tube-like structures) projecting backwards out of their hind end can also be seen which is a big identification of aphids.
