The white tricarinate scales
The white tricarinate scales are males and the brown elongate ovals are females. These are armored scales, Unaspis citri (Citrus Snow Scale).

Thank you.

mealybug ovisac?
we have these on our citrus too, i assumed they were mealybug ovisacs and didn't look much closer.

However, it is odd, to me atleast, to see them without a significant infestation, with adults present etc.

Hopefully others will chime in, meanwhile i'll look more closely!

possibly scale? Icerya purchasi

So the small white ones are juvenile scale?
