???
Please, explain! What do these things have to do with the moth? They are not the same individual if you found them the same day. What are they anyway? What size? How are they related to the moth?

 
Re ???
The moth was found in the house and over a couple of days produced many of these eggs which did not hatch. They eggs were not measured. I've added another photo with the moth and eggs for scale.

 
I see now
I never saw eggs like that. Very interesting. I was wondering whether they were cocoons or what.
