Joe, this is the gall of Dasineura investita Plakidas 2012 (Cecidomyiidae).

Moved from ID Request.

Dasineura
These are on Laportea canadensis, right, rather than Urtica sp.?

 
most likely
but is it different than these http://bugguide.net/node/view/364357/bgimage

 
I think they are probably the same
or if not, they are another, closely related undescribed Dasineura species, so we might as well keep them all in the same section until somebody names them.
