Thanks!
Will these eggs overwinter? They were found in close proximity to a spider egg sac. I'm thinking of keeping them in a container on the porch were they will receive normal outdoor temps.

 
I'm not sure
These were hatching in the fall, for what it's worth:

 
Wow!
I wonder how they manage to survive freezing temperatures. I think that I will keep them in a container with the egg sac and see what happens. The leaf is already off of the tree- that is how I discovered it. I had cut a few magnolia branches for Christmas decor the other day.
