In our garden beds, the corrugated striped cabbage flea (Phyllotreta undulata) is the most common. It belongs to the leaf beetle family. It is named after the yellow stripes on its wing covers and its specially designed jumping legs that enable it to leap up like a flea. It is about 1.5 - 3 mm in size.
Its larvae are white and about 4 mm in size.
