Acorn Plum Wasp Gall

Amphibolips quercusjuglans


This gall had dense, red flesh. It had a small cell in the center, which had one Amphibolips quercusjuglans larva (the large one) AND several other smaller wasp larvae. So, this gall had been parasitized. It did have a crack in it, which is how I was able to pry it open. The outside of the gall was brown and dark red.


Habitat: Spotted on the ground (detached) in a mixed forest, but in an area dominated by oak.
