Cynipidae, dead - Neuroterus saltarius

Cynipidae, dead - Neuroterus saltarius
Center Point, Linn County, Iowa, USA
Galls collected May 30, 2012.
Batch rearing. But I didn't catch emergence.
In sorting through the peat, sand and debris, a good number of galls had emergence holes, far more than found wasps. But the wasps probably disintegrated over the time it took to finally sort them out.
Found a couple of parasitoid wasps as well.
