Vitisiella sp. Vitisiella sp. Fedotova and Kovalev, 2003  


"These galls are caused by a species of midge in the genus Vitisiella. The genus needs revision, and this may be an undescribed species. They have nothing to do with phylloxerans, which are aphid-like insects (one of which does cause grape galls)." (Charley Eiseman via BugGuide)
