This is a mostly gall-focused account, but I dabble with plants, plant pathogens, and insects as well.

Recommended Gall Identification Resources for the eastern United States
Getting started
www.gallformers.org - great new resource from @megachile and @jeffdc

  • N. Charney and C. Eiseman - Tracks & Sign of Insects and Other Invertebrates: A Guide to North American Species - Has a good section covering most of the common galling species. (2010)
  • Cranshaw and Shetlar - Garden Insects of North America (2004) - Also a good place to look for general categories.

More advanced;

  • E.P. Felt - Galls and Gall Makers (1940)- An oldie but a goodie
  • L. H. Weld - Cynipid Galls of the Eastern United States (1959) - Great guide for the gall wasps
  • R.J. Gagne - Plant-feeding Gall Midges of North America (1989) - Great for the midges
  • R.J. Gagne - The Gall Midges (Diptera: Cecidomyiidae) of Hickories (Juglandaceae: Carya). (2008) - Caryomyia species treated in depth.
  • R.J. Gagne - The North American gall midges (Diptera: Cecidomyiidae) of hackberries (Cannabaceae: Celtis spp.). (2013) - Celticecis species treated in depth
    -T Pergande - North American Phylloxerinae Affecting Hicoria (Carya) & Other Trees (1909) - A good starting point for the hickory phylloxera, still learning these.

  • Beutenmüller - North American species of Diastrophus and their galls (1909)
  • Daniel McCloskey @ddennism - Goldenrod Galls https://www.inaturalist.org/journal/ddennism/28052-goldenrod-galls (2019)
  • J. Plakides - The Gall Midges (Diptera: Cecidomyiidae: Cecidomyiinae) From Allegheny County Pennsylvania (2016) - contains descriptions of new Dasineura species on Laportea canadensis.
  • Tommi Nyman - Aspen gallers - https://www.jmeg.fi/InsectsOnAspenGallinducers.htm
