Caption: Oak spangle galls caused by the larvae of the gall wasp Neuroterus quercusbaccarum. The reproduction of gall wasps is unusual in that, in most species, there is a regular alternation of generations, a bisexual generation being followed by an all- female, parthenogenetic generation. The galls produced by the two generations frequently bear no relation to one another. The asexual generation of N. quercusbaccarum form the oak spangle galls, in which they overwinter.
