On Quercus berberidifolia.

Nice find!

Moved from Gall Wasps.

I didn't even realize it was different from the others I was photographing till I got home...

Am I correct in thinking this is the same gall Ron Russo calls the Pinched Leaf Gall Wasp on pg. 168?

It's the same as Ron's pg 168, figure 128, "Pinched Leaf Gall Wasp." If Ron gets to update his book some day, the gall will have the name Andricus bakkeri. He has Lyon's paper now and agrees it's the same species.
