Unknown Eggs - Harmonia axyridis

Unknown Eggs - Harmonia axyridis
Mobile (Dog River), Mobile County, Alabama, USA
April 21, 2012
Size: 0.6mm (each egg)
Look like could be moth eggs, on Siberian Elm. I taped nylon over then, so should know before long :)


Moved from ID Request.

Looks like a...
Lady beetle eggs to me :)

Ahh ...
I did see an Asian Multicolor on the tree, but ignored ... like we need another adult. At least I should be able to get a positive ID on these. Thanks

probably, if they're H. axyridis
It's the only spp. in North America that can be positively ID'd to species even BEFORE it's out of the egg - those double-branched spines are so distinctive! On the other hand, these could be another species, I've often found more than one kind of LB on the same plant. Anyway, interested in finding out when they hatch!
