Default Eggs ID Requested

Any ideas?

I just spotted them on the underside of one of our dogwood trees. Lucky for me the wind was blowing.

I'm hoping it is a native insect and not an alien pest.

I just went to check them out. (I've not been on lately.)

What happened to yours!?

I still don't know what they were, and I couldn't find them when I went back to check. I should have thought to mark the leaf.

Butterflies donít usually lay eggs so densely packed on a single leaf. I would bet on a beetle or bug. Very cool!

Thanks, turttle.

I wish I'd kept my eye on them. As long as the tree isn't defoliated by some invasive caterpillars, I'm fine with it.

Wow! I just checked out your pictures!

Too bad you didn't know what host plant to put them on.

In my experience, those are pupae for something. Not eggs.
