I believe these are stinkbug eggs I found on a leaf near our back porch. Taken with the Olympus em1 mark 2, 10mm Kenko tubes, Olympus 60mm macro lens, Raynox 202 and 110 images focus stacked from normal focus bracketing mode.

Many of the stink bugs (or shield bugs as we tend to refer to them in the UK) produce very interesting eggs, either in terms of patterning, sculpturing, or indeed how they are arranged on a leaf, as a 'raft' on in paired rows.

In green shield bugs, Palomena prasina, the female will find a suitable plant on which to lay (oviposit) her eggs. The eggs are usually laid on the underside of a leaf in multiples of seven and 'glued' to the leaf cuticle. This is due to her ovaries (she has two) being divided into 7 tubular ovarioles.

These are gorse shield bug eggs (Piezodorus lituratus);

If the implication is that 1of1snowflake's eggs are the same species as what's shown at Flickr, then I have to say I think that's probably wrong. The eggs shown at Flickr have distinctive wide bands and an overall texturing of light color, both missing from 1of1snowflakes' eggs. Likewise the ones at Flickr have an overall coating of short spines, different here, and both the morphology and count of spikes around the "crown" are different.

I apologize for the critique, but incorrect IDs are a plague on insect photos on the internet. We try to keep their number down here at photomacrography.net.


1of1snowflakes, a nice image! I notice a couple of eggs at the left side, somewhat OOF, that look much lighter in color. Do you know what's going on with those?

Sorry Rik, it never occurred to me that I was implying that is what these are. They are not, and I have no idea where 1of1snowflakes image was taken. I merely named mine, as I know that is what they are. I watch them each year on gorse bushes near me.

Sorry for the possible confusion.

My guess at the time was that a parasitic wasp has had it's way with the lighter colored ones...

No worries, language can be tough to parse. Thanks for the clarification.

For what it's worth, the IP address of 1of1snowflakes' posting maps to Beaverton, Oregon, U.S. Pacific coast region near Portland. Of course that doesn't mean the photo was taken there!

Mike, I could not find any implication ref 1of1snowflakes photo.
in your photo.

ref, your photo, I have found similar eggs on a gorse bush at the side of an old disused railway line, that is now a footpath at Great Harwood. Lancashire.
Always believed these to be shield bug eggs.
