Are these insect eggs on a chilli pepper?

I posted this under Identification a few days ago, and received no response -- perhaps that was because it should have been under Foreign Finds? Apologies if so.


I'd appreciate it if someone could tell me what this is, found on a chilli in Florida, USA, this month. Are they insect eggs, and if so, what sort of insect?


The person to whom the chilli belongs also says: "I found this on my pepper yesterday when I picked it. It looks too artificial to be biological to me. It had two identical silver "caps" at the end with seventeen sections in between. When I went to remove it it didn't move, just flaked off section by section (you can see the sections in the photos by counting the red dots)."


What might this be?
