Eggs of the Geometridae have very few features typical of all species. The great majority are oval in shape and deposited on their sides. The eggs of a few species are vertical or at a 45° angle when deposited in clusters. As a rule they are not spherical or cone shaped as in Arctiidae and Notodontidae, or distinctly depressed and scale like with radiating ridges as in Noctuidae, or very flat overlapping masses as in Pyralidae and Tortricidae. One fact of significance is that eggs of species in a given genus usually resemble each other rather closely.
