tiny, light green spheres laid in a row down the middle of the leaf, about 7mm
I spotted this on a leaf while hiking the Bruce Trail at Queenston.
Thanks Jake. That is my bad, I'm not sure which plant it was on. I really have to pay more attention to that next time.
Interesting! Which plant was this found on? Even a family could help quite considerably with these galls.
They do look similar. They could be related. Just today actually I saw something more similar to your spotting, 4 small reddish green balls on leaf on a rose bush, but they weren't all on the main vein.
Also found on main vein.
How interesting Dan. I wonder if they are similar to my spot, though I live in Australia & these were on a Eucalypt species. http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/120...
Thanks Sergio, missed you in my first comment. Thanks again, Keith, that narrows it down.
Probably some kind of Gall Midge. I've seen them produce galls on leaf midveins, but never so evenly spaced.
Thanks Keith, I was just thinking that as I was posting it. I should have checked to see what the plant was, but I didn't. Next time!
Do you know what kind of plant they are on?
At that size I'd think leaf galls.
"Eagle eyes" Dan. Nice one pal.
