|Gall Midge adult- Charley Eiseman|
This gall lives on a very common but economically unimportant species, the Cornus or Dogwoods. Research is funded primarily by studying insects that affect agricultural plants, or "follow the money" as they said in All the Presidents Men. It is unlikely that a formal study will focus on this species in the near future. Not that C. tuba cares. It is doing quite well without our attention.
