Vapourer Eggs

Dear Delfina,
These are the eggs of The Vapourer,
Orgyia antiqua, a species we found on Nature Spot where it states:  “The female lays her eggs on what remains of the pupal cocoon, which then overwinter. When hatched, the very hairy caterpillars feed on a range of deciduous trees and shrubs.”

Location: Houghton Regis, UK
