|I have always wondered if there is a list of the colors of insect eggs or insect egg sacks by order?|
As tiers, we often try to imitate the female egg layer in our flies. However, I have seen different colors used. For example, I have seen both yellow and green used for egg sacks on caddis patterns.
This summer, during a Salmonfly "storm", I found orange eggs on the females. Although, most others say such eggs (or egg sacks) on Salmonflies are black?
Good, scientific info would be welcomed!
Thanks, in advance.

Don't recall ever having encountered a list of ova color by insect order, or by anything else for that matter. However, it would seem to be useful information to have.
