The ends of several low growing stems of a bramble Rubus fruticosus growing beside the River Bourne had these very deformed ends: Parasite/herbicide or other nk cause, any ideas???

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 550 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
