All right, you gall fans! Hope you can help with an ID here. Location is Northern California. The gall was on Nerium oleander, one that seemed wild and growing along the waterfront. The only galls I've found that are similar in appearance are some made by Pseudomonas savastanoi pv. nerii (which I've used for an ID as a place to start). I have no idea if galls from that bacterium are even found in this area. But there's obviously something else that has used/caused the gall because there are exit holes. Ideas?
