Are these sawfly eggs? - Arge
Reveler Conservation Area, North Stormont, Ontario, Canada
August 6, 2015
I found several red oak leaves rimmed with these 'eggs'. When I returned to check out the tree on August 20, I found some tiny sawflies on the same small red oak (Quercus rubra). Is it possible that these could be sawfly eggs? I am attaching a photo of the sawflies too.

Argidae
Arge sp. These look like sawfly eggs. Arge species insert eggs along the leaf margins similar to this. The larvae are a species of Arge. The only Arge I know that feeds on oak is Arge quidia, but the larvae are too young to be sure.

 
Many thanks
I am really pleased to get more information about the sawflies and to know that these are sawfly eggs. Thank you.
