Doesn't resemble A. cookii either internally or externally. Doesn't really look like Disholcaspis either...

Amphibolips cookii versus Disholcaspis quercusmamma
guidingguida on iNaturalist ID'd it as D. quercusmamma. His response to your ID: "I was under the impression that the inside of A. cookii should be empty except for many spindles attaching to a chamber containing the larva (like in this observation: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/31187097) where D. quercusmamma is filled with a fairly solid material (like in this observation: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/31257076)"
