Hello, I found these eggs on a plant outside my house. At first glance, I thought they were tiny snails, but after closer examination, including using microscope, I realized they were more circular, weren’t spiraled, and what looked like a hole was actually just a dark spot. I’m sorry, but I don’t know what plant they were on, or what laid them. I was hoping you could tell me.

Dear Plantie,
These look like Conchuela Bug Eggs which are pictured on the Texas A&M Agrilife Extension website.  BugGuide has a nice image of a Conchuela Bug,
Chlorochroa ligata, laying eggs.
