Thanks
I never expected to get an ID on these eggs. Is it firm enough to put it on a species page?

 
I think so
Certainly other aphids have black eggs like that, but until I see a reference to another species laying them in a line on a pine needle like that, I'd say this belongs on a species page.

 
 
Thanks to both
I am thrilled. Never expected to get an ID.

white pine aphid
Just discovered those myself the other day! They are the eggs of the white pine aphid, Cinara strobi.
They are pictured on page 85 of this book.
