Cecidomyiidae, Blephilia - Neolasioptera

Cecidomyiidae, Blephilia - Neolasioptera
River Trail, Decorah, Winneshiek County, Iowa, USA
October 12, 2020
Galls on stem of woodmint, Blephilia sp. (apparently B. hirsuta). Each gall is hollow inside except for a small, sealed-off chamber in which the larva dwells. I cut open both of the galls shown in the current image; one of them (with its inner chamber opened to reveal the larva inside) is shown in the current series. The other gall is shown here

with its inner chamber still sealed.
