Your pictures are really unique compared to all the ones on your links, is the "stem thing" that has a hole under all the male galls supposed to be the female gall? I am amazed at all the different Eucalyptus kinds of galls and some are so huge, you would think they were fruits! California and Mexico are full of Eucalyptus now, but no galls. We only have one beetle so far that has made it to the California Eucalyptus. I found my first one on the Channel Islands 5 years ago! https://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/41....

Marvelous! Congratulations!Can't believe you got an ID! Very cool. I never would have thought it was a gall, and made by male scales. Really neat and interesting life cycle.
