Fall Galls

You may be-galled out, but I’m certainly not. All of the above were gleaned from under a great white oak, the mother (?) of galls, on October 10. Five species of gall wasps are represented here.
Pea Gall (Acraspis pezomachoides).
Philonix nigra.
Round Bullet Gall Wasp (Disholcaspis quercusglobulus).
Andricus wendi.
Clustered Midrib Gall Wasp (Andricus dimorphus).
In this latter case, a leaf with most of the cluster still attached had also fallen.
