    A collection of galls observations. The reference field guide is: Field Guide to Plant Galls of California and Other Western States by Ronald A. Russo. One of the best sources of information about galls in California is Field Guide to Plant Galls of California and Other Western States by Ron Russo. Unfortunately, this book is out of print, though it can be found in some bookstores and online at a relatively high price. Luckily, there are other books that have great sections on oak galls.

    The largest percentage of these insect galls are found on plants in the rose, juniper, willow, sunflower and oak families. According to R.A. Russo (Plant Galls of the California Region, ), almost half of the known galls in America occur on oak trees (Quercus). In fact, many of the wasps causing these galls belong to a single family of gall. According to the Field Guide to Plant Galls of California and Other Western States by Ron Russo (University of California Press, ), the gall wasps which may affect Salvia species in California and other western states are Rhopalomyia species. The galls they form are tubular in shape, and not fruit-like in appearance.
