Galls on leaves of Wyethia mollis. Searching for this on the internet, I found this is probably from the nematode Anguina balsamophila. It can also infect Balsamorrhiza sagittata. Photos here show both leaf surfaces, galls cut open with nematodes visible (under dissecting scope), and nematodes (approx. 1.5 mm long) on millimeter ruler.
Observation made on northwest slopes of Jeff Davis Peak, east of Blue Lakes Road, near Thornburg Canyon Trail, Mokelumne Wilderness, Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest, Alpine County, CA, elev. ~8600 ft.

I found this minute odd little fellow today on Clover Run in Tucker County. I would have never noticed it if it were not for tying my boot lace. You can see a hemlock needle for size reference. There was one more nearby that was more compact and funnel shaped like it wasn't ready to open up into the flower petal looking form.That photo didn't come out. (8/28/18)
