black disc shaped eggs on pumpkin leaves

alexander3_gw(6 Pennsylvania)September 5, 2012

My Atlantic Giant pumpkin plants are fading fast, and I just was looking at the leaves. A couple of them had a whole bunch of black disc shaped eggs on thin stalks. They were not in clusters, but spread all over, some with 2 or 3 eggs on a stalk. Bigger than squash bug eggs, a little over 1/16 inch in diameter, but quite thin. I can post a picture later, but does anyone know what kinds of eggs these might be?
