Stink bug eggs…
Both predatory and herbiverous stink bug eggs are often preyed upon by a wide variety of parasitic wasps such as Telenomus which may be what hatched out in this case. An example of this can be seen here.

See reference here.

 
Thank you for ID
Hopefully it was parasitic wasps and not stink bugs emerging from the stink bug eggs. The wasp looks familiar.

As of now, all eggs have hatched. I'll keep an eye on my nearby tomato plants.

-Thank you-
