New Cynipidae (1890)

Neuroterus flavipes n. sp.

On bur-oak Quercus macrocarpa

Gall.--A hard woody swelling of the mid-rib or one of the main veins of a leaf, the leaf becoming much wrinkled and deformed as the result. Large galls measure three-fourths of an inch in length and one-fourth of an inch in width. The flies usually escape from the upper surface, sometimes through a slightly raised teat-like projection.

Galls were gathered at Ames, IO, July 6 1888, from which the flies had already begun to issue.
