Rhopalomyia californica gall with odd hole - Rhopalomyia californica
Carpinteria Salt Marsh, Carpinteria, Santa Barbara County, California, USA
January 25, 2012
Size: 11 mm (gall)
After a few weeks going by with no more emergences from the gall, I decided to go ahead and cut it open to see what I could find inside. This is how the gall looked before I started.
