    These small fungi began to appear after heavy rain. Puffballs, probably Calvatia lilacina?

    Very large web with a number of these small spiders scattered across it, presumable raiding someone else's pantry.

    Nymphes myrmeleonoides
    (species)
    Taxonomy: Animalia: Arthropoda: Insecta: Neuroptera: Nymphidae: Nymphes: myrmeleonoides
    Common Names: Lacewings, Blue Eyes Lacewing
    Janet Grevillea says

    I was sitting in the dark when this insect flew onto my computer screen. She quickly flew off, and now, a couple of days later, I found her dead in my study. Still, she has quite a legacy, as there are many horseshoes of eggs on the ceiling of my verandah.

    Janet is currently having an issue adding a new comment to this record. She asked me to update that it was Kate who the ant ID rather than Matthew. Thanks Kate.

    Thank you Matthew for the ID and Kate for the larvae information. Alex Wild's photos are wonderful. These ants were moving because a human (who later regretted it) pruned off the dead branch in which they had been living.

    Kate Sandiford says

    These are larvae not eggs. Alex Wild has a very interesting gallery showing the different life stages of ants (eggs, larvae, pupae, adults) and the variety of these stages between species: https://www.alexanderwild.com/Ants/Natural-History/Metamorphosis-Ant-Brood/
