Caption: Lacewing eggs. Cluster of eggs laid by a lacewing (order Neuroptera) attached to a twig. Lacewing's lay their eggs on the tips of long silken stalks to disguise them and possibly to prevent the first larvae that hatch from eating the other eggs. The eggs have a fungus-like appearance and were once even classed as fungi, with the scientific name Ascophora ovalis. There are about 2000 species of this predatory insect.
