Mite galls on alder

This is very probably E. laevis but strictly speaking the mites that cause the gall should be examined by an expert. This is of course a counsel of perfection and rarely possible.

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
