While I was collecting Polystepha galls to rear out, I noticed quite a few galls that were much smaller, not as crackly textured, and seemed to be different than the Polystepha globosa they appeared with. Even the larvae were different colored. Separated them out into a different rearing container on the off chance I can get adults to compare with P. globosa.

I collected and measured 16. Average size 1.7mm compared to P. globosa which is 2.6mm.

@calconey @megachile @kimberlietx @jeffdc, collected some of these same galls from a tree near the previous observation (https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/74158192). Have the stem in my posession and left some galls on the tree. I can add any perspectives or try any methods (dissection, letting them hatch to see what comes out, etc., if you can walk me through the necessary steps to do so) that would help in identifying these galls to species level. Many thanks for the help and enthusiasm in identifying these so far.

The wool comes off in an average manner. (Not too easily, but not too difficult either.) The galls seemed to be tiny kernels (Pic 7) stuck together with long irregular length wool that "doesn't have visible segments at all; the longer, straighter wool from each kernel just blends together" to quote @megachile They were firmly involved in the midvein and not easy to remove. They were slightly smaller than a sesame seed.

I am basing this on the cross-sectioned seed (last photo) which is quadrangular (vs lenticular). Stems and leaf underside are pilose mainly along the veins, not hirsute which would be consistent with T. perfoliata var perfoliata. So if I am wrong, that is my second choice.
