Chadwick's No. 2
Host Acer negundo L.
A shallow dimple on the under side of the leaf, filled with a white pubescence. In this gall as in the preceding species, the leaf blade has been very much thickened by proliferation in the mesophyll. The cells produced are circular in outline and of about the same size as those of the normal spongy parenchyma. The hairs produced in this case not infrequently consist of from 2 to 3 cells which are very much convoluted. They are well shown in Fig. 4. The hairs on the normal leaf of the host are straight or only very slightly curved, but the glandular, convoluted type of hair is found on the inflorescence. Both the normal and abnormal hairs are composed of the same number of cells.”
