Oak Rough Bulletgall  - Disholcaspis quercusmamma

Oak Rough Bulletgall - Disholcaspis quercusmamma
Ames, Story County, Iowa, USA
April 12, 2009
Size: 1 cm
2011 update: I collected a few more of these galls and all but 2 had emergent holes. I opened one (with no emergent hole) to find 1 live larva. So, I think this photo might show parasitoid larvae.
