Ohio Gall Checklist

Ohio Gall Checklist
A draft of a gall checklist for Ohio, sorry about inconsistent common/scientific name usage, capitalization and loose host associations. Will edit to correct these details in the future. List contains mostly described species, will add undescribed species in the future.

Comments represent my personal experience hunting galls in Ohio over the last ~5 years (seriously in the past 3)

Nice list! I need to explore non-cynipid galls more.

Wow! Just wow!

I gotta see this list for TX, @kimberlietx !

Wonderful, wonderful list! :)

To clarify your host list a little bit, Antistrophus silphii is known from Silphium integrifolium and perfoliatum, although it may actually be two species (in which case the name A. silphii applies to galls on integrifolium).
The Silphium species with known galls you might be able to find in Ohio are Silphium integrifolium, perfoliatum, laciniatum, and terebinthinaceum. If you find any of these you might be able to add ten or more species to your list - there are seven described Antistrophus species on Silphium but that's certainly lower than what I'm observing in galls I'm rearing. However Silphium galls have not yet been reported in Ohio - definitely possible based on host ranges but still a mystery!
If you do locate A. silphii galls they'll appear as enormous swellings at the apex of the stem - you can harvest them post-senescence and rear them incredibly easily. The other species are internal stem gallers and don't leave any obvious indication of galls even existing - if you cut apart a stem you can clearly see masses of larvae, pupating wasps, etc. and you can rear these (post-senescence as in silphii) by just storing the stems in bags/containers and waiting for emergence.
@adeans and I have a catalog in review that treats non-Cynipini gall wasps of US, Canada, and Mexico which is available as a preprint (https://preprints.arphahub.com/article/68559/) in case it's of interest to you - there are still a few records I need to add but it'll likely be finalized in the next month or two.
Your list shows just how much gall diversity you can find in a single state! Absolutely fantastic work!

Thank Louis! @louisnastasi updated the list using your catalog and hosts that are at least naturally present in Ohio. S. lacinatum is rare in Ohio (at least native populations) and S. integrifolium has no native populations (although it is in quite a few restored prairies) so I think any species on them are unlikely. Perfoliatum and terebinthinaceum are common and have some very old populations, so I feel like that would probably be the first place for me to look..

@adeans I'll get right on that! ;) I'm actually very tempted, but I have a feeling that Tim made it look really easy...

Awesome list. Would be cool to figure out how to integrate this data into our gallformers.org database.

Αναρτήθηκε από jeffdc 4 μήνες πριν (Αναφορά)

The fun thing about Silphium gallers (aside from A. silphii and laciniatus) is that their galls are imperceptible in stems so there's a good chance any restorative efforts have introduced them, especially if they were transplanted from wild populations.
I did my undergrad in Cleveland and worked at the natural history museum so I may have some contacts of mine take a look for me this fall around their natural areas. Ohio is probably the most likely state outside known distributions to have them so I'm very interested in doing a thorough examination!
Also just a disclaimer that hosts for Diplolepis are very muddled so the current range of rose species for each wasp may not be entirely accurate.
