Searsia galls were collected on 15 June.
On 5 July this larva was found writhing around on the floor of the container, having exited a soft green gall. I've put it in a smaller container with soil, but it does not seem best pleased.

I collected some galls from Dipogon lignosus. As I cut into one I was startled to discover an adult wasp struggling up out of a cavity. I slapped a jar over the gall and managed to get some pics. Other galls contained larvae.

Three wasp eggs and prey were taken from a nest:

Eggs collected 20 April.
Hatched 1 May.
Pupated early June
