Pink Spotted Lady Beetle egg mass - Coleomegilla maculata
Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania, USA
July 31, 2009
Size: ~1 mm
Identity confirmed by rearing the larvae that emerged.

The eggs of C. maculata are bright orange, elliptical, and rounded at the top. Egg masses are small and tightly packed together. Sometimes they're laid on the upperside of a leaf, like these; most lady beetles lay eggs on the underside of leaves.

Plant: Carrot (Daucus carota).
