Galled (?) Runner Bean pod
Observed: 20th August 2012 By: RHoman

Orange larvae found inside a runner bean pod, but not inside the bean itself. The area on the inside of the pod around the bean was covered with brown wart-like swellings which contrast with the normally smooth surface of the inside of the pod. Perhaps the orange larvae ans swellings indicate a cecid fly or is that 2 and 2 makes 5?
