Acacia galls

Trichilogaster sp.


Very small (about 3-4 mm) wide orange, red and yellow galls on secondary stems of an acacia wattle.


Spotted on Silver wattle (Acacia dealbata)


Thanks to Mark Ridgway for pointing me to the correct genus. These galls are formed by a wasp in the Pteromalid family.

The options seem to be all arthropods so maybe change category ?
