Linda and all,

Nearly all butterfly eggs have a highly textured surface, not so smooth and=
glassy as these. For an example, here=E2=80=99s a photo of a Banded Hairst=
reak egg:=20
https://bugguide.net/node/view/803022/bgimage <https://bugguide.net/node/vi=
ew/803022/bgimage>=20

And one of a Gray Hairstreak:

Hairstreak.jpg <https://alabama.butterflyatlas.usf.edu/static/images/LifeCy=
cle-23-Egg-Gray-Hairstreak.jpg>=20

Just skimmed the =E2=80=9Ceggs=E2=80=9D chapter of Noah Charney and Charley=
Eiseman=E2=80=99s book =E2=80=9CTracks & Sign of Insects=E2=80=9D (of whic=
h everyone here should own a copy). Christine is correct that the leaf-foot=
ed bug genus Acanthocephala has smooth-shelled eggs of roughly this shape a=
nd color. So do a few species of moths. Not sure which, if any, are more li=
kely to be on a Beaked Hazel=E2=80=A6
