Katydid eggs?
These were in an oak tree about 30 feet up. The branch fell in the wind and I was able to recover them. I'll keep them and see who comes out.

Moved from ID Request.

They do seem to be katydid eggs
The arrangement is different from what is typical for Microcentrum... I wonder if these are from some Florida-specific katydid. Unfortunately it looks like most, if not all, of these eggs have exit holes of parasitoid wasps. Worth hanging onto them just in case though.

Hi Charley
This wasp emerged from one of the eggs.
