Gall (Blaesodiplosis sp.) on Shadbush (Amelanchier sp.) Isn&#039;t this gall so pretty?! I spotted it near the end of a long hike and nearly missed it as my one goal was to get back to the car and enjoy air conditioning and heated seats. I&#039;m glad I stopped for the galls though - they were so unusual. <br />
<br />
Thanks to Charley Eiseman, I have a species level ID for this gall! <br />
