I just about spotted some slimey transparent egg cases/coccoons/not-sures in a wood in Essex on Saturday before I walked into it!
They had been laid on the end of a beech leaf at head height and seem to be full of larvae so the original inhabitant may have been parasitised.
Can anyone tell me what they are?
These are caddisfly eggs, Glyphotaelius pellucidus is one of the species that lay their eggs on leaves above or near water in this way.
Brilliant, thanks for very quick id!
