This update is to bring you some more images of galls found on Oak. The Oak tree itself is a relatively young one of 25 years old and is in quite a sheltered position, at the base of a slope and sheltered by a tree belt on the other side of a grass path.
The galls shaped like miniature doughnuts are very common and are called Silk-button galls Neuroterus numismalis
The disc-shaped galls with a raised centre are Common spangle gall Neuroterus quercusbaccarum.
Artichoke or Hop gall Andricus fecundator (above and below)
Can you help identify these galls ?
Is it a marble gall or a cola-nut gall ?
Is it a Cherry, Currant or Pea gall ?
If you have any suggestions for the species names of the above galls, leave a message below.
Many thanks. Sarah.
