  1. Hmm, did they look like they had fungus growing on them? Or some kind of silk? They could be snail/slug eggs? Posted 3 months ago
    1. seemed to be covered in a layer of silk. i'm not great with eggs, but assumed it was arthropod in nature due to the silk? Posted 3 months ago
      1. Similar to this:
        Eggs in Rotting Wood There were about 14 eggs covered in silk. I'm guessing they are probably spider eggs.<br />
