Assassin Bug Eggs

Description:

This little patch of eggs was so beautiful, I've never seen any that look like these. If you look closely at the last picture, the white opercula have tiny snow flake designs on them. Each egg was about 2 mm in length. It appears that only the center 2 eggs are actually attached to the branchlet. All the others are glued to the center 2 and to each other. Assassin Bug eggs, Family Reduviidae.

Habitat:

On roadside bushes, Km. 16, Highway between San Cristobal de Las Casas and Tuxtla Gutierrez.
