Milkweed Leaf Beetle Labidomera clivicollis

Date

April 6, 2016 11:38 AM CDT

Place

(Somewhere...)

Description

Two clusters of eggs observed on underside of leaves of tropical milkweed (Asclepias curassavica). Sunny, light breeze, 70sF. I am confident of the identification of these eggs because I have actually observed a female L. clivicollis ovipositing them in the past on milkweed at this location.
