Eggs of seven economically important noctuids commonly transported in plant trade, three of quarantine plant health significance in Europe, are described and illustrated using stereomicroscopy and scanning electron microscopy. Autographa gamma (Linnaeus), Helicoverpa armigera (Hübner), Lacanobia oleracea (Linnaeus), Mamestra brassicae (Linnaeus), Spodoptera exigua (Hübner), S. littoralis (Boisduval) and S. litura (Fabricius) could be separated using external morphological characters on the chorion of the eggs, enabling early identification of quarantine pest species. Keys to distinguish the eggs of the seven species are provided.
