Mature female Tanyscelis gall

Tanyscelis ssp.


On the stem of a young eucalyptus this series of sharp spikes ran for about 200mm. This is the same tree as the previous spotting.


Eucalyptus stems - this one on E.globulus?

These seem to be the same. My dissection revealed very little inside. This seems to be a deeper gall that is promoting growth of deeper wood tissue. This looks like bites or eggs because they are oriented in rows but other things like nematodes or fungi can form galls too. Still confused.
