Even as someone who worked with redbay for years, this one has me stumped, so I'd welcome any suggestions. Small yellow-orange galls on the undersides of redbay (Persea borbonia) leaves, mostly along leaf veins. Hemispherical with a flat bottom, detachable (with effort). Quite hard and solid. When cut open, there are distinct layers of tissue but I can't find any chambers with larvae. Of course, if you search for "Persea leaf galls" you find many references to the redbay psyllid (Trioza magnoliae), which this definitely is not.

Maybe Cecidomyiidae or Cynipdae? Maybe even fungal?

The last picture is UV flora, shot by a full spectrum camera with an UV pass + IR block filters stack, aka Bee vision.
It doesn't show any special UV pattern, maybe because the main pollinators are flies?
