The correct caption of Figures 2 and 3 are shown in this paper.
Fig. 2 Cross-sections of a gall fragment limited externally by parenchymal emergences (projections) and internally by the larval chamber, showing an outer cortex with distributed vascular bundles, transitory layer cells, and an inner cortex (a). Gall surface projections covered by trichomes (b). Outer cortex with different shapes and sizes of hypertrophied cells, thin cell walls, and intercellular spaces (c). Inner cortex, surrounding the single larval chamber (d), without evident intercellular spaces and laterally compacted, which causes a rectangular shape of the cells. Above the inner cortex occur a Transitory layer cortex composed of irregular cells (e), and below is the cells adjacent to the larval chamber with conspicuous protoplasm (f). Em - emergence projections, VB - vascular bundles, OC - outer cortex, TLC - transitory layer cortex, IC - inner cortex, LC - larval chamber, Tr - trichomes, IS - intercellular spaces, Va - vacuole
Fig. 3 Gall macro-structure showing a single central larval chamber (LC), recovered by nutritive tissue (NT) followed by storage tissue (ST) (a). Starch grains found throughout the entire outer cortex defines this region as storage tissue (b). The accumulation of lipids (c) and proteins (d) on the inner cortex, defining the typical nutritive tissue. In galls with parasitoids, in larval stage, the proteins are relocated, appearing mainly within the vascular bundles in the cortex (e). Scale bars: a–d = 1 mm, e = 250 mm. VB - vascular bundles
