adder Ramshorn Galls

Ramshorn galls are produced on the buds of oak trees by a tiny wasp called Andricus aries.  The gall has a rounded base with two tapering projections, although the shape can be very variable.  It's green at first, becoming brown with age.  Ramshorn galls are fairly common in the south east of England.
