I agree now, probably a color variation. Thanks for the feedback

The main difference between Cosmisoma chalybeipenne, and Cosmisoma flavipes.
Is that Cosmisoma flavipes has a dark blue-ish color, on the thorax like yours.
While Cosmisoma chalybeipenne, has a bright orange on the thorax, and head.
See these links for comparison:

They look like Tolype eggs, because the picture in this link of Some sort of Tolype eggs, look just like the ones in your second picture.

Great find. Here is an identical species found also in Madagascar, but has no ID. This is definitely some species of tiger moth caterpillar (Arctiidae) https://travel.mongabay.com/madagascar/i...

I agree. The habitat along the Rio Grande provides a home for many Central and South American strays of moth and butterflies, which are rare when they come this far north.
