How do I record Mossy Willow Catkin Galls?

How do I record Mossy Willow Catkin Galls? Because the causer is unknown they don't appear to have a scientific name and thus cannot be recorded in the normal way. Is there any way of recording these? Thanks.

It can be done

Do a search on All Records and enter Mossy Catkin Crown Gall as common name.  Several records come up, for example 20131239.  They are mostly entered as species group Virus and  'Caurser Unknown'.  I hope it doersn't require you to say if it is an adult or lpupa.

Thank You. I found the records for "Causer unknown (Mossy Willow Gall). But when I tried to send the record it was blocked with the message 'The taxon must be specified'. I have noticed that all the records preceed the new iRecord format introduced in November 2020. Perhaps this has something to do with it?
