Green eggs on milkweed?

I tried looking this up, but can’t really find it. They are a different color than the milkweed tussock moth eggs I have seen. The milkweed tussock moth caterpillars I had just ran off to pupate.

Any idea?

    They are beautiful, Iris, but I have never seen eggs that color in that type of grouping under silk. Great set-up for the eggs though. And great photo! :)

    What kind of milkweed are the eggs on?

    I looked it up last night and couldn't find anything, either. They could be spider eggs, I forgot to look that one up.


    Nix that - spiders have those sacs

    It’s on common milkweed. Somebody suggested Lynx Spider eggs, but I haven’t been able to find any matching images. No adult close by to guard the eggs, either. I have these spiders around though. Going to keep an eye on the eggs.

    I don't know of any spiders that lay individual eggs. Iris, are these eggs covered in a gauzy thread?

    That’s what it looks like.
