Description:

Some kind of galls - maybe some kind of spangle-gall but I'm not very sure - on underside of oak leaf. (I'm having a guess at it being the Silk button Spangle gall, because it doesn't look like other types, but I'm really not sure.)

Thank you for your

Thank you for your identification - I hadn't seen these before, only the common spangles (I think) and wasn't at all sure I'd got it right! I just found them today and really liked them some how! I didn't realise there aren't usually so many.

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

see

http://www.ispotnature.org/projects/plant-galls

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

There are cureently over 400 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
