What on Earth . . .?

Hva i all verden er det som skjer her? Jeg har sett insekter spise av blad, og jeg har sett sommerfugler spinne kokonger, men – hva i all verden er nå dette? Det kan se ut som en løvsykdom, men på den annen side er det tydelige spor etter at noen har spist deler av bladet og – det kan se ut som rester ligger på bladet under, men så da?
Hvordan kan noe vokse ut av bladet fra innsiden? Og hva blir utgangen på dette?
Kanskje jeg bør gjøre som man gjorde da man var barn og oppbevare bladene på et syltetøyglass i påvente av utvikling? Kan noen av mine lesere gjenkjenne dette, eller ha noen formening om hva som vil skje videre?
What in Earth is happening right here? I have seen insects eating foilage before and I have seen butterflies spin their cocoons, but what in this world is this? We could be looking at a foilage defect of some kind, but on the other hand it seems to be pretty clear that something has eaten parts of this foilage? And that the leftovers are lying on the leaves below, but then what?
How may something from the outside suddenly grow out from the inside? And what will the end game show me? Perhaps I ought to do what we did at school, – cutting off the leaves and keep them in a jar until something breaks?
Can any of you readers of mine tell me what’s going on here?

    Seems they are quite invasive. I am glad you found out what they are.

    • Seenorway says:

      Fortunately no invasion from outer space this time, Eugenia, but you never know! Astroids are hitting the Earth several times a year, but we are only noticing the big ones! The smaller ones burn to cinders through the atmosphere, but – once in a while . . . ! 🙂

  2. Some micro insect that has created a temporary home and supermarket on your leaves…. seen it before but have no idea what they are called

      It seems that Puzzleblume came up with the answer? I googled the latin name she gave us and the pictures that came up looks just like mine. However, the 2 mm doesn’t quite fit the bill. These strange things vary from 2 mm till as much as 20 mm

    I would have thought they are some sort of fungus. But ‘Puzzleblume’ knows luckily!

    These are lime nail galls, and mites named Eriophyes tiliae are the reason. Don’t worry, they do not affect the tree.

    • Seenorway says:

      Thank you! Never saw anything quite like this in my life before! I thought perhaps some fungus might have been the answer, but then again something seems to have eaten part og these leaves . . .?
      But I googled your latin name and found you to be right on the button! Thank you again!

    Nei dette har jeg aldri sett før?

    Jeg vet ikke helt, men det kan være en parasitt som har lagt egg inne i bladknoppen.

    Stein, I have no idea! I doesn’t look good. Let us know when you find out! 📚🎶 Christine

    • Seenorway says:

      It sure doesn’t, Christine. It looks kind of weird, but hopefully there will be someone out there that has seen this type of problem before?
