short-haired fuzzy Arizona gall - Andricus sulfureus

Madera Canyon, White House Picnic area, Pima County, Arizona, USA
September 28, 2008
I found a couple of trees next to each other, not far from the picnic area, that were loaded with many species of galls. I'm pretty sure these galls are from a different cynipid species than the longer-haired fuzzy galls in this photo.

I just stumbled on these photos and recognized the galls. I reared both this species and the one from the fuzzy red galls last winter. The latter is a much larger wasp. I'll post photos when I get to them (I'm only up to November in my sorting). Do you know anyone who would be willing and able to ID the specimens?
