"Frog Moths"

I was watching this video of Lynch making quinoa with broccoli (as you do), and at a certain point he steps outside the kitchen to tell a story of a nighttime train trip through Yugoslavia when he was young.  The train stops for a while and he describes a vendor selling "sugar water" and how the air was filled with all of these moths.  He gets really worked up and at one point (around the 10:11 mark) blurts out, "frog moths pulling themselves out of the earth."  Maybe an early inspiration for the egg creature?  It's certainly a memory that has stayed with him.

I wonder if his Yugoslavian 'frog moths' were actually cicadas?  I'm sure someone else on this forum mentioned that the bug part of the amphibug looked like one - and it could also explain the time taken to emerge (periodical cicadas in the US are usually 13 or 17 years - but the emergence time can be other prime numbers - like the 11 years from 1945 - 56)

The cicada nymphs which 'pull themselves from the ground' are wingless - but then the winged form splits the larval case & crawls out - see the first minute or so of this:

Great catch, gotalight!

This is the water and this is the well. Drink full and descend. The horse is the white of the eyes and dark within.

In the Bible there were ten plagues on Egypt. Two of them were locusts and frogs. Both of which can be described as a pestilence, which is the name of the white horse of the apocalypse.

All I could find, with the help of a stranger, was this. Not sure if it's directly related or not.

Next page described a woman with the "flying frogs" covering her chest and hands, that the Indians began to worship.

This is similar to the frog-moth & the 1956 girl:
