Flowerbud galls on Actaea podocarpa. The galls appear as enlarged flowerbuds, and each contains a single off-white larva. Similar galls on the closely related Actaea simplex in Japan are made by one or several undescribed species of Schizomyia.

Super cool!! Large cluster of galls around stem of Artemisia ludoviciana with two recently emerged gall midges perched right above the galls. They were both females with very impressive ovipositors. Very fascinating part of nature that I was lucky to witness. I'm IDing as Rhopalomyia because every other Cecidomyiid forming galls on Artemisia is from that genus, and the adults are imilar in coloration to Rhopalomyia that have been reared by others.

Description

While this isn't the greatest photo, it does nicely show why the bandy wings of these flies might help them to mimic jumping spiders. Face-on, the black bands on the wings look like two pairs of slightly folded jumping spider legs. As jumping spiders are a major predator of flies like this, adaptations to discourage attack are beneficial. This fly is haunting its host plant, a goldenrod (Solidago sp.).
For a fun review of insects thought to have spider-mimicking markings, see: Hill, David E., A. P. C. Abhijith, and João P. Burini. "Do jumping spiders (Araneae: Salticidae) draw their own portraits." Peckhamia 179.1 (2019): 1-14.

On new upper leaves of Solidago rigida, Stiff Goldenrod. Largest gall 6.5 mm diameter. Opening on bottom of leaf. About half the galls had very frisky orange larvae or pupae. The other half had an apparent wasp parasitoid pupa hanging from the top of the gall as in the second to last photo, or a tiny quiet larva as in the third to last photo. 4th photo shows larva’s topside, 5th show its bottom side with maybe prolegs. Last photo is to confirm ID of host plant, a bit worse for the wear after being in my pants pocket for half a day and the fridge overnight.
