Goldenrod Bunch Gall Midge Rhopalomyia solidaginis (Loew, 1862)  

Status:

"The female deposits an egg at the tip of the growing plant. Its larva secretes a chemical that prevents the goldenrod stem from growing although it continues to produce leaves, thus a shortened bunch of leaves is formed." (BugGuide)
