This grew up in my water cup over night!

  1. Length ~ 12mm
  2. Form - spiral made of dark dots
  3. It does not move
  4. Growing slowly

Can some one help identify it?

    $\begingroup$ I would guess these are eggs of some animal. Just a wild guess. $\endgroup$ – bli Jun 14 '18 at 11:45

  • $\begingroup$ Wow, what a precise location :D I didn't know that there was a city with such a name, only knew the fur with this name! For how much time that speak would grow? Did it happen something afterwards? $\endgroup$ – LinuxBlanket Aug 16 '18 at 0:36

    $\begingroup$ Definitely eggs since it appeared so quickly. Caddisflies (Trichoptera) lay their eggs in spirals within a slimy blob, but some searching made me see that other animals do too. Like this bugguide.net/node/view/641162 that apparantly comes from midges. Perhaps someone else can come closer! $\endgroup$ – picapica Oct 9 '18 at 9:30
