Juncus galls
If you happen to run into galls on Juncus nodosus, that species is associated with Livia crawfordi, which is the final (described) nearctic Livia in the L. maculipennis group . That species seems to be widely distributed across North America. I've also heard of galls on Juncus articulatus, but no clue what species that is... In California there's also a Livia on Juncus nevadensis which is possibly an undescribed species.
