Chokecherry Gall Midge, Contarinia virginianiae

Have you seen this gall on chokecherry? Alaska IPM is tracking the distribution of the chokecherry gall midge and could use your help! This small, orange fly larva lives inside the fruits of chokecherry trees. The berry expands into a fleshy, hollow gall that protects the larvae as they develop. If you see these galls please submit a photo of the galls on the tree as well as the location of the tree to the UAF Cooperative Extension Service pest reporter to help us map the occurrence of this insect in Alaska:
