Cynipidae, galls on Creeping Charlie - Liposthenes glechomae

Cynipidae, galls on Creeping Charlie - Liposthenes glechomae
Ames - Tullamore, Story County, Iowa, USA
July 11, 2013
I can't remember how many times I halfheartedly tried to rear these gall wasps on Creeping Charlie, Glechoma hederacea, but 2006 was probably the first time.

This time, July 9, 2013, I dug the plant, potted it, contained it, and watered it. There were 2 galls.
