Artichoke gall

Not sure if I should call this a gall or a gall causer, because you can only see the gall, not the wasp

Syrphus's picture

It is usual to record these

It is usual to record these (your other posts too) under invertebrates, as the galls are distinctive - a lot more so that the causers.

I am trying to get all UK plant gall postings in one place


This will hopefully increase the "visibilty" to people interested in plant galls and increase identifcation/confirmation rates

There are cureently over 500 records collected

Could you please tag any plant gall records "plant gall" or "plant gall causer" - without speech marks

Thanks in anticipation - appologies if you get multiple requests as I am trawling through past records.

If you feel reasonably confident in your id why not go to "other observations and confirm them - Following Derek's advice - if you go here to get to the next record for the same species just go to the top left and click next
