Yellow eggs and Leptus mite

Yellow eggs and Leptus mite
Fredericton, York County, New Brunswick, Canada
June 25, 2015
The egg mass was on the underside of a plant that was either aster of goldenrod.

I just checked this mite out and it is a member of the Superfamily long-legged velvet mites (Family Erythraeidae, Subfamily Leptinae and Genus Leptus). I have cross-posted this to Superfamily Erythraeoidea - long-legged velvet mites HERE and will await confirmation.
