Spring 2022

After a relatively dry autumn, good germinating rains occurred in December; a bit late for an ideal spring wildflower season, but nonetheless holding some promise for a good one, presuming following rains occur through March.

Fringed-cup gall adult

An adult emerged from one of the galls in this original observation. Good to see after rescuing the galls from a fungus that was spreading mycelia around the galls in their original container (I'm not good at this sort of thing). I'm resigned to euthanizing the thing if there is some place I can send the insect for further identification. Also curious how best to preserve it. Any advice would be appreciated.
