It's a little secret hobby of mine that I love looking at strange bugs, but given my residence in the good old U of K, I don't often get to see anything particularly 'out there'.
Fortunately, a dear friend enjoys taking pictures of the bugs she finds over in America and often shares the photos with me. We can normally identify the bug species/type and then research into them, plainly out of a little bit of fun curiosity. This particularly buggy has us both stumped though.
Is anyone able to tell us:
The name of this insect.
The species/creature family it belongs to.
What the strange brown line they have crafted is. (We speculate eggs.)
The reason such is crafted in a line.
