Observed under a microscope, these egg cases are 2mm long.
No identification made yet.
No interactions present.
I hadn't finished with the description.. the other 2 photos are of the creatures which hatched from the eggs on the rose leaf and are maybe 3mm long, and 2 days since hatching. They are being fed on sugar solution and are very active. I have no idea what they are, so any observations would be welcome!
The egg case looks very like the egg case of a sawfly. However the larva looks like that of the oak sawfly Periclista lineolata. You could try giving them a choice of oak or rose leaves to eat!
Thanks very much, I'll try that and continue to watch them as they grow.
not sure these are sawflies, usually sawfly eggs are laid in slits in plant tissue, the slits are made by the saw-like ovipositor, hence the name. Perhaps they are beetles? What do they look like now?
thay could be a new spicies of moth or somethin
how are u sure thay hatched from the egg cases
