Galls of North America project

Just a quick note to let folks know I've created a Galls of North America project...
https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/galls-of-north-america
...along with an umbrella project to keep track of all the existing regional gall projects...
https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/north-american-galls
...mirroring the Leafminers of North America project (https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/leafminers-of-north-america), which has a corresponding umbrella project at https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/north-american-leafminers.

I'm not really focusing on galls right now, but it seemed like there was a need for this, since gall inducers (like leafminers) are spread over numerous taxonomic groups, and it's nice to have a centralized place to go looking for gall mysteries to solve.

Please spread the word as you see fit! @srall @susanhewitt @psyllidhipster @gwark @apgarm @edanko @harsiparker @catherineklatt @berkshirenaturalist @jasondombroskie

Welcome to Leafminers of North America

Hi everybody!

Thanks for adding your photos of leaf mines to this project. Just a few hours in and there are already over 600 observations! I wanted to mention a few things in addition to what is in the "About" section:

  • If your photos are already part of a regional leafminer project, there is no need to add them here, since I've created an umbrella project to keep track of them all: https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/north-american-leafminers ...If you are aware of others (or decide to start one), just let me know and I'll add them on.
  • There is lots left to learn about leafminers, so if you encounter mines that can't be identified, I encourage you to try rearing them to adults. My rearing methods are outlined here: https://bugtracks.wordpress.com/rearing/
  • For a complete accounting of what leafminers are known from every plant in North America, including mysteries that need further investigation, see my Leafminers of North America e-book: http://charleyeiseman.com/leafminers/

There are well over 2000 species out there, and the umbrella project currently registers 119, so let's see how many more you can find!

Greetings!

We're off to a good start, with over 1200 leafminer observations included in the umbrella project just a few days after it was created. I expect I will be adding journal posts more often to the other project where people can add observations directly, so be sure to check there for updates: https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/leafminers-of-north-america

Happy hunting!

Charley
