Color layers in mature galls (green-yellow-green)
Leaves minimal indention of upper side of leaf

Description.—Gall (Figs. 2, 39–41; Plate 1, Figs. 8, 8a–f). On leaf lamina, usually on underside of leaf, often in groups; upright-conical; base flared, circular, flat to rounded; tapering evenly from base to sharply pointed apex; surface naked, glabrous, green, turning yellow to tan; 4–6 mm high and 3–4 mm wide at base; connection to leaf circular, flat, ca. 1/3 width of gall base; apparent on opposite side of leaf as slight, sometimes discolored convexity; gall in cross section of variable thickness beneath and around base of subcylindrical larval chamber, thinning abruptly between distal third and fourth, at which level gall apex breaks off upon adult emergence in spring. (Gagne 2013)

Reddish with green base, leaves a scar/pad when it falls off

Description.—Gall (Figs. 16–17). On major vein, usually on lower surface of leaf; upright, elongate-cylindrical, unevenly tapered beyond 2/3 length to rounded, weakly recurved apex; basal margin irregularly angled; surface glabrous, naked, slightly furrowed, visible longitudinal veins slightly spiraling; green, usually turning red; 6–7 mm in length and up to 2 mm wide; connection to vein a prominent, circular, flat, persistent brown callus at least as wide as gall base; gall apparent on opposite side of leaf as slight thickening of vein; wall thin throughout, larval chamber of same shape as gall.

Attached well, a little woody to cut through

Description.—Gall (Figs. 2, 42–43). On leaf lamina, usually on underside of leaf, single or in groups; upright, elongate-conical, tapering evenly from sharply angled base to pointed apex; surface glabrous, green, turning tan to brown; 6–9 mm high and 2–3 mm wide at base; connection to leaf circular, flat, ca. 1/2 width of gall base, apparent on opposite side of leaf as slight discoloration, rarely as small convexity; gall in cross section thin-walled especially beyond 2/3 height, the cy-lindrical larval chamber extending from base of gall to apex.

Firm but cuts easily

Description.—Gall (Figs. 51–54). On leaf, an integral spherical blister usually of the leaf underside, and a narrow chimney on the opposite surface through which the full grown larvae eventually exit; green, the same color as the leaf, matte, with short white pile on the blister side, bare on the other; blister 4–7 mm in diameter, 3–4 mm high, the chimney on opposite side of leaf ca. 2 mm long; gall thin-walled, no thicker than normal leaf tissue.

Easily detached

Description.—Gall (Figs. 5–6). On leaf lamina on underside of leaf; depressed, circular, the sides conspicuously sulcate with 10 or more furrows, broadest at mid-length, apex with central spine; green, turning brown, granular, moderately long-haired but hairs not obscuring surface; ca. 2 mm high and 3–4 mm broad; connection to leaf conical, fitting into slight depression of leaf, a slight brown convexity apparent on reverse side of leaf; wall thick laterally, thin apically; larval chamber ovoid, extending the length of gall, lined with brittle tissue distinct from remainder of gall.

Not easily detached, very firm

Description.—Gall (Figs. 13–15). Usually along twig, occasionally on fruit, petiole or major veins of upper side of leaf; spheroidal, often irregularly so, woody, often consisting of two or more coalesced galls, usually with short nipple at apex; hairless, surface shining, becoming matte, red or green, turning brown; 5–7 mm high, 5–12 mm wide; connection to host small in extent, not apparent; walls thick, woody, but thin below nipple, the larval chamber ovoid.

Larva from leaf mine on cultivated Capsicum annuum here: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/52723647 It left the leaf mine on it's own. I don't expect it to pupate, but I put it back on the host plant and will check for more signs.

Reared from mine on Quercus stellata (Post Oak, White group). Life cycle links in comments below.

I've added lots of pics since these are so hard to ID. Knowing the host plant helps narrow it down to a complex of oak and chestnut miners.

Found some unusual things on this Convolvulus leaf. No larva inside, but I found a pupa in a silk enclosure and something else (pupa?) on the edge of the leaf.
