I'm pretty sure these are eggs of a Green Dock Beetle, Gastroidea cyanea.

I found these beetle larvae on Rumex leaves. I saw adult Green Dock Beetles and eggs today in the same area, so I am guessing these are Green Dock Beetle larvae, Gastroidea cyanea. If not it likely some other Chrysomelidae larvae.

I can report that here are at least three species of Hordeums growing in Moore Creek Preserve thanks to Steve Gerow's assistance. Two are introduced species, and one a native. They are, from top to bottom: H. murinum, H. marinum and Hordeum brachyantherum.

It was good to see a fair amount of this grass in Moore Creek Preserve. Looking at patches of it from a distance, the purple really stood out from the surrounding green.
