Description

Galls from Quercus sinuata breviloba. Original observation: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/65612505

This is a 4 part series of photos on the galls. LOTS of pics since we don't know anything about this one.

Part 1: Original observation https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/65612505
Part 2: External galls and leaf placement https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/68706554
Part 3: Leaf petiole holes (assumed to be where eggs were oviposited) https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/68706555
Part 4: Gall cross section and wasp (This observation)

Note that the photographed wasp that was cut out of the gall may not be the host, as several inquilines have been reared from these galls.

I noticed black spots on the petioles of the leaves with galls and assumed this to be where the eggs were inserted. Either way, it is interesting and something I haven't noticed on other leaves before.
