Hello Litonotus,

A very nice set of pictures.
Thank you
The dark "egg" is an ephippium (like a saddle of a horse) wifh in it a dormant embryo. It is the result of sexual reproduction. In this ephippium the embryo can stay dormant for a long time, even years. After environmental conditions get better the embryo will develop and molt.

Regards

Clado
