Goldenrod Elliptical-Gall Moth, spent pupal case - Gnorimoschema gallaesolidaginis

Goldenrod Elliptical-Gall Moth, spent pupal case - Gnorimoschema gallaesolidaginis
West Oak Woods, Mills County, Iowa, USA
September 25, 2016
I now remember why I was pretty sure that taping the gall back together wouldn't work. Originally I hadn't planned on trying to save the larva and the cut-off portion of the gall was destroyed in the cutting process. So I added a piece of sturdy paper to the gall opening before taping it back shut.
