Does anyone know what this is on my leaf? Is it some sort of mold or larvae?

Bug eggs. I never saw before.
I'd put leaf in jar, to see what hatches out.
It could be a good bug ?🤔???

Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

They could be butterfly eggs. Butterflies lay all sorts of looking eggs, and in groups like that. Or possibly moth. Knowing what the plant is will help with your investigation.

I think it is most likely stink bugs , butterfly eggs are usually spread out one to a leaf.

Not strictly true krobra, some butterflies do lay single eggs but not all.

My opinion is like the others, bug eggs. I would put them and some leaves it was found on in a jar and hatch them out. Mystery bugs!!

Little moths that feed on my bird seed as larvae use a little cocoon that looks just like that. They emerge shortly as these tiny moths with a 3/8" wingspan.

Hi Big Bill, do you have a picture of the moth or can you describe it? Bob can then look into it and get closer to finding out whose eggs they are.

I never took a picture because they were so small and flew crazy. They were about a half inch or so, ranging in color from a light beige to beige brown to beige gray. The cocoons were the same color, conical, hung by a few spun threads. Blunt at the top tapering to a point at the bottom. Maybe to 5/8" in length.
I found these cocoons more so in my bathrooms but a few all over. Outside they would generally be high up, from 5-8 feet off of the ground.
