      So nicely shaped they look almost like eggs

      It's interesting how these kinds of insects and occasionally viruses are able to alter the genetic make-up of their (plant) host to suit their individual, developmental requirements.
      If not already a subject of any real research, it's definitely a process that deserves a more serious looking into.

      Galls are at least even versatile like the MYxo's, interesting, but less beautiful

      This one is special anyway

      mmm nice. I haven't found galls yet that were intact like this, these are perfect, as is your focus on them.
