The Mystery Of The Sticky Sticks

Yesterday, my daughter, while she was picking spearmint leaves for tea, spotted this bunch of sticks (dry lengths of grass, really) glued on the bottom side of just one leaf. It reminds me of a candidly larva’s protective casing of pebbles glued together, but also of a butterfly’s egg.

I issue a cry for help to the entymological community: What is this thing she found?
