Q. lobata with gall opened to reveal larva cases (3). Most of the interior is spong/styrofoamlike.
Scurrying across the bridge to avoid my treading upon it. It was all of about 1.5 inches.
All along the fence line and creeping into the path again. Colors rapidly fading. Everywhere from 1' to 10' high
Along Alpine Road in the disturbed areas along the new trail. So if it is nearing 3' tall. No flowers yet but the strong odor if you touch the plant or brush against it. I understand it is highly invasive. I want to catch some of the flowers before seeking permission to harvest these plants.
