One group was on a stone wall.
They are ~ 0.8mm long. They have a translucent membranous flap at the end.
I know they are not:
- citrus leaf miner (Phyllocnistis citrella) because that moth lays its eggs singly,
- citrus shield bug (Rhynchocoris humeralis) because they are the wrong shape
I suppose I am not 100% sure they are eggs; they could be communal pupae, perhaps.
