Currant Galls

Currant Galls

Observation - Currant Galls - UK and Ireland. Description: I'm pretty sure these are Currant Galls, on the anthers of a veteran oak pollard in a local park. These would be the sexual generation of the same gall wasp that causes the common spangle gall on oak leaves in its asexual generation.
