Whose eggs?
If I understand correctly these eggs belong to the host and not the parasitic wasp. It may be OK to keep them here for lack of a better place, but they belong to another taxon altogether.

The wasps emerged from these eggs.
As stated on the first image, I assume they are Lepidopteran eggs but they are important to show the host for the wasp.


Most likely deceased
if we're talking about the lepidopterans. Can't say with any certainty whether the wasps were mature or not at this stage. ;-)
