The pictures below cover just some of the amazing and varied inhabitants of oak-galls and the Rose bedeguar. The terms used are described elsewhere in more detail but the following are used here:

A 'causer' is the species of insect which causes that particular gall to form and grow into its unique shape and composition.

An 'inquiline' is an insect which lays its egg within the gall and whose larva feeds on its food store, but does nothing to promote the evolution of the gall.

A 'parasitoid' is a parasitic wasp (chalcid or ichneumon) which lays its eggs in or on the insects found inside the gall - whether causers, inquilines or other parasitoids.

'm' or 'f' refer to male or female (sexual) insects.

'ag' is an agamic female; one that reproduces asexually.

Important, please note that all 'lengths', in millimetres, are for body only - excluding projecting ovipositor sheaths.
