Description:

Shown near common spangle gall on oak leaf.
Should insect-caused galls be in invertebrates or plants? The system puts them in invertebrates for the causer rather than the host, but I feel botanists might be better at recognising them?

Thanks for the confirmation David! I'd almost given up hope for this one. :-)
