Parasitic Bug?

Observed: 15th August 2013 By: toricatucitoricatuci’s reputation in Invertebrates
Parasitic Bug (not very clear)

A volunteer brought this image to me today that they took last night in their garden and asked me if "caterpillars laid eggs?". They asked this as an almost catatonic caterpillar was seen on their wall for several days doing 'nothing' but apparently alive; then yesterday it 'laid' all these eggs. I have asked them for a close up if possible....

That was quick!

Thank you - I shall pass on the information which probably won't be well received!
