Guess I'm blind, I don't see anything but water on the leaves. Oh wait I see tiny little specks in the center. Hmmmmmmmmm, wonder if they are snail eggs?

I'm not sure what they are but thperhaps haps daphnia eggs, but I would like to ask if anyone know what the black shiny splodge is. I've several of these attached to my aquatic plants and can't find anyway to identify them.

Hello and welcome! Where do you live and what kind of weather have you been having?
Thanks for the welcome. I live in Kent UK and although nights still frosty spring is starting to bloom. When giving the pond a tidy I notice these black shiny splodges on the plants, mainly underneath and wondered what they are.

Dragonfly Eggs (Odonata) do look similar. Could a macro photo be taken of the objects in question?

Mine do. The seeds are in a gelatinous substance, inside the base of the flower. After the petals fall off, that round section that remains sinks to the bottom of the pond and the seeds are released.

There is plenty of information online about growing them from seeds.

I am going to throw in a guess of dragonfly eggs. I have watched dragonflies lay eggs in a tiny drop of water on lily leaves and lotus leaves. I believe the eggs hatch and the larvae go down into the pond to live part of their life cycle underwater.
