Nice spotting Christiane. Your lerps and Luis' and mine are the same http://www.projectnoah .org/spottings/8885130
You may have also noticed a cluster of eggs, (clearer in mine) that I believe to be the same species. The host looks similar to this
There are also brown organisms (clearer in yours) that are somehow related. Any ideas?
