Kind of a Medusa thing going on with these acorns. On a white oak hybrid, possibly Q. lobata x garryana. (Last photo has leaves.)

Found by @chilipossum on Scrub Oak, very interesting! The side view photos do look more acorn-y 😆

Russo's "Flange Gall" (2021, p128). On Q. douglasii. Most of these seem early stage to me, without the points at the base. This is the earliest I've seen any of the galls; previous observations were in Aug, Sep, and Oct. There is an insect next to the oldest gall. I can't tell what it is (no great photos), but I put together the "best" shots in the third photo.

These are more recent photos of this observation: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/77834290. Several leaves, plus a better view of the habit. The photo of the trunk was taken on 28 Apr 2022, but I thought it might be helpful. I have no photos of any parts of the acorn.

@merav @nancyasquith @garth_harwood @megachile Do you guys know of a cone gall on Chamise? @chyroptera and I found about half a dozen of these in various stages, with a clear chamber when split open.

I was surprised to notice what appeared to be several fresh galls of varying growth patterns on my backyard Frangula californica.

Part of my surprise is the timing. It is early for flowering and especially fruiting. When I looked at the bush today I only found one flower bud on a bush that is approximately 2 meters x 2 meters. Yet there were 7 apparent galls of varying forms. I am moderately-to-highly confident that these galls did not exist in November.

This gall looks a bit like a possible fruit gall previously reported here:

https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/95882473

But it is lacking the pointy appendage (which was visible on some other galls today).

It looks like there was a single puparium (or is it two?) inside.

This is distinct from the spring flower gall that has multiple larvae inside, as seen here:

Not sure whether CA scrub oak or leather oak is host.
