A cluster of hatched eggs attached by one end to the edge of a leaf. The leaf edge where the eggs were attached showed significant damage. There were tracks along the leaf possibly made by feeding larvae.
Spotted on the same eucalyptus tree as the adult beetle seen in the previous spotting.https://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/2032977706
Various species of leaf beetles seem to have different ways of attaching their eggs to their larval food source- some in rafts, some in clusters around stems and some like these in apparently disorganised clusters.
