Wasp Gall

Description:

I think this is in the family Cynipidae, perhaps the tribe Cynipini, and the maybe the genus Acraspis.

Habitat:

I think this was on Quercus ilicifolia, however it could be Quercus prinoides.

That is a beautiful gall! I have not seen one quite like it (yet). I have a new mission for Arthropod galls. I would love if you would consider adding this spotting! http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/1473...
