Unknown Galls

Gall-inducing insects induce distinctive woody gall on plants. We listed the Eriococcid galls induced insects in this page. However, not all galls on plants are induced by Eriococcid. Some galls on plants may be induced by gall-wasps (Cynipidae), gall-midges (Cecidomyiidae) or some other insects. 
Please advise if you known the ID of those species below. 

Eucalyptus gall 1

? Cynipidae, dia 3-5mm 
This gall is common on ironbark gum leaves. Graham Brown sent us email suggested that this gall might be induced by chacidoidea (Hymenoptera), a kind of very small parasitic wasp.
