Description

After finding some Willow leaves covered with tiny galls, I opened one up with a razor blade and examined the inside with a Hitachi SEM (Scanning Electron Microscope, courtesy Merritt College, Oakland, CA). I found several dozen mites inside the gall (see attached SEMicrographs). The average length of each mite was about 90um.
