Whose Eggs are These?


The other day, while on my morning walkabout, I noticed these strange little eggs on the stem of my Pennisetum spatheolatum. I can't figure out for sure what type of eggs they are. There was a ladybug perched on the blossom at the end of the stem...but that could be a coincidence. I did a Google search and most of the photos show ladybug eggs being a sort of yellowish-orange and are laid in sheets of a few dozen on the underside of leaves, not circling stems like this, and not in this quantity! Does anybody know what type of eggs these are...just curious.


I checked them again today, just to see if I could get a better pic, and the eggs have actually turned weird!


  1. Have no clue, hope someone else is able to id these mystery eggs for you. :)

  2. I have never seen anything like it, but I am eagerly awaiting the answer.

  3. That is really interesting! I haven't seen anything like that before.

  4. I don't know what they are, and I'm curious, too. I am pretty sure they aren't ladybug eggs. Keep checking on them to see if there are other changes.

  5. Fascinating! Feel free to link this post to my Creature Feature meme published today!
