Did you ever find out what kind of eggs these are? The reason Im asking is that early this morning I went out for my 5am touchy/feely time with my Passi's; and I started wiping off what I thought were Dust or Tiny Bug Specs on a Lower Leaf of my Sapphire and then after I wiped most off I realized this specky dust was hanging in the air. So I bent down and took a closer look and I realized it was the same "egg" you have pictured above. I only have 2 left on mine but they weren't on a stem they are actually standing straight up on the top of a large Bottom Leaf; which I thought was odd; you would think that whatever layed them would want them protected under the leaf. I figure I will leave them alone 2 eggs can't do all that much harm.

Thank you soooooo much eclpsprinc!!! yes, they are indeed lacewing eggs. the eggs in the above pic are almost ready to hatch, I do hav one plant that is getting eaten by spider mites so I am thinking that they will have lots to eat. Just as a side note I found a fresh egg on one of my brugs( it is still green) and on the next leaf there is a cluster of aphids.. can you say dinner bell?? LOL
