Life cycle: Day -2 - Cycloneda polita

Life cycle: Day -2 - Cycloneda polita
Alameda County, California, USA
August 2, 2009
I find eggs on the underside of a leaf of red chard in a bed where the chard is infested with black aphids. Four eggs look damaged (bitten?), and a fifth, near the right end, is smaller than the others.

Guide page
I just put a link to this series on the information page. It is well worth it.

 
Great!
It's gratifying to know that all that aphid-wrestling I had to do may add to the total of knowledge about these creatures. The ladybugs, I mean, not the aphids.

 
life cycle series
What a great series of photos! Could I link to it from my BugLifeCycles.com site? Come visit the site and let me know if I can add you as a contributor.

 
Linking
You're welcome to put a link on your site. Adding me as a contributor wouldn't be very meaningful to viewers, as I use a pseudonym for privacy's sake. By the way, your link above goes to a blank bugguide page.

life cycle posting
I finally got this up on my life cycles site, and you're listed as a contributor. Check it when you have a chance to see that it's OK.

OK except one tiny thing
It looks fine, but there should be a comma after "California."

You can also use my moth series if someone in the know ever confirms that the creature is Pyramidobela angelarum, the buddleia budworm, or identifies it as something else.
