Neuroterus laurifoliae, n. sp.
Gall. An oblong, wooly gall on the upper or lower surface of the leaves; the wool is fawn colored, long and fine, covering three or four, sometimes more irregularly rounded, flattened disks, in the centre of which live the flies; they are attached to the midrib by a nipple-like point; the disk or cell is concave above and measures .08 to .10 inch in diameter.
Several specimens bred. The fly very strikingly resembles Neuroterus verrucarum, but the gall is very distinct and cannot be confounded with it.”
