    Happy to help Graeme. I look forward to the results; even if nothing hatches it'll be a learning experience. Have some of them hatched on the tree already? Can see some browning. That's probably a good leaf to pick as you'd be confident they'll hatch sooner before the leaf dries out? Cheers Brett

    G'day Graeme; there's a galls project you can add this to. Might also help. Do you need to water the leaf? I've often thought of doing that but assumed the leaf would die, with the insects without nutrients / water? http://www.bowerbird.org.au/projects/99 Cheers Brett

    Thanks for pointing that out Brett. I didn't know about the galls project. I have not hatched them before so can't comment on water requirements. Will post pictures of whatever comes out though.

    I have a leaf in a jar. I wonder what will hatch, flies, wasps?

    The galls look small and irregular, like they might be made by mites. If so, adults will be in the galls but they are tiny and you will need a good hand lens or microscope to be able to see them.
