Assassin eggs on black locust leaf

Assassin eggs on black locust leaf
Atco, Camden County, New Jersey, USA
July 26, 2016
Found these honey colored eggs on young black locust leaf close to the ground.

Since it looks like a Zelus nymph overall and eggs looks similar to eggs in this image,

I'm thinking it's Zelus tetracanthus...

Assassin eggs on black locust leaf Hatched! Hatched! Hatched!

Somewhat similar one identified as
Fitchia aptera here.

But we don't know how similar the eggs for different species can be :(
