Yaupon leaf gall - Gyropsylla ilecis

Yaupon leaf gall - Gyropsylla ilecis
Torreya State Park, Liberty County, Florida, USA
February 23, 2017
I think these galls on this yaupon shrub (Ilex vomitoria) are the work of yaupon psyllids, Gyropsylla ilicis, but I cannot find good pictures online to confirm. Are there any other insects that make galls on this species?

Moved from Unidentified Galls.

Yaupon leaf gall
Gyropsylla ilicis is the only species known to make these kind of galls on Ilex vomitoria, so you are correct.
