Field notes on gall-inhabiting cynipid wasps with descriptions of new species

Disholcaspis cinerosa

The large pointed-bullet galls of this species, described from an unknown oak, occur on Q. virginiana and have been seen at various points in Texas: Houston, Wharton, Victoria, Cuero, Boerne, Austin, Sabinal, Kerrville, Beeville, Tiger Mills, Columbia (E. A. Schwarz), and Quincy. A tree at Wharton contained hundreds of them in October, 1917. While growing they secrete honeydew and wasps frequent them in large numbers. J. D. Mitchell reared the adults at Victoria December 5-25.
