I am thinking Parry's milkvetch (Astragalus parryi); however, everything I've read says that it is restricted to the eastern side of the Continental Divide. This was found on the western slope. http://www.easterncoloradowildflowers.co...

Gall insects are an example of commensalism called shelter symbiosis.
