Howdy, these were found in a heap between avocado leaves. Can you ID? They’re about 1cm diameter, about 10 of them, tangled in sticky web, hard shell.

Happy New Year Becky G,
We agree with you that these are Bolas Spider Egg Sacs, not those of a Bolsa Spidea.  Bolas Spiders are very well camouflaged and are difficult to find.  The egg sacs we reported on in November appear to have been parasitized, but we have hopes that a few individuals will hatch to perpetuate the species in our garden.
