Are these dogbane beetle eggs?

Are these dogbane beetle eggs?
west of Snow Hill, Worcester County, Maryland, USA

Size: cluster dia about 5mm
I found these on the underside of a dogbane leaf in a very dry, sandy habitat. Dogbane beetles were the only active insect I saw on the plant, so I thought perhaps they might be dogbane beetle eggs. Does anyone know?

Moved from ID Request.

Not completely sure...
...but these remind me of Assassin Bug eggs:

Others may have different suggestions.

And since they're predators, their eggs could be on any plant.
