This plant is a weed -- just shows up and prospers but it is really pretty with very tiny white flower early summer and silvery seeds now. The seeds stick to clothes. I believe it is native to my area

Description

Looks like a mud ball that has been attached to this plant, which I think is Horseweed (Erigeron canadensis). Is this the work of some kind of mud dabber wasp, or some other kind of insect that lays it's eggs in a mud case? It did not look like a gall that was part of the plant itself. My impression is that this was attached to the stem of this plant, again, which I think is Horseweed (Erigeron canadensis).

Update 8/11/2020:
In looking for information on another gall, discovered Aleppo Gall which looks strikingly similar, but it grows on oaks, and that is not where this was.

Maybe urophora cardui? The pale head and generous ovipositor have me unsure. I was hoping it was the goldenrod gall-related fly since this is on a solidago species but i don’t think that’s right.

Found on stem of annual sunflower (Helianthus annuus). Some of the ants seemed very interested in it.

Initially thought it might be a tortoise beetle. Think I'm seeing a little leg or something sticking out from under it? It was stuck very well to the stem, but gone the next morning.

Not quite at 3000 observations, but I hit 50k IDs so good enough for me.
Baklava is nearly one year old! And as handsome as ever.

Some of my favourite recent interactions:

"Baklava, why is your hand in the beans? Please.... stop. no" -- this morning

"Hey Baklavush, I'm home. Who's a handsome boy? ... stop, Baklava, stop it. Shoes are not for eating."

"Hey! Baklava-- אין לי כח עליך (I have no more energy to deal with you) -- stop knocking things off my desk!" (one minute later) "MEOOWWWH. AAAOO. MEAOW." "Baklava, shut up! I'm not letting you outside!" (one minute later) "meaOWWW...."
