Dodder Gall Weevil

Dodder's Tangled Tale

Dodders are parasitic plants belonging to the morning glory family, Convolvulaceae. They were formerly placed in the dodder family, Cuscutaceae, with only one genus in the family, Cuscuta. I think it’s fitting that dodders belong to the Convolvulaceae family because the taxonomy for this group of plants has been convoluted.
