gall

The leaf margin is rolled inwards, either up or down, en discoloured yellowish.

Ericaceae, monophagous

Vaccinium myrtillus, vitis-idaea.

synonyms

Jaapiella myrtylli. According to Gagné the more logical spelling myrtilli, is incorrect.

notes

Possibly not an autonomous gall causer, but an inquiline of Hygrodiplosis vaccinii (Redfern & Shirley, 2011a) or Jaapiella vacciniorum (Skuhravá, Skuhravý & Meyer, 2014a).
Because of this discussion, and also because the gall did not contain a larva, the identification of the pictures above nas to be tentative.
