Wheel Bugs
I think so, look at this series:

Yours have plumper abdomens--that's the only difference I see. Odd.

They are better fed and not newly hatched
The set I watched took almost 2 months for the last one to leave the egg mass. If you look at the egg mass, they have all hatched out some time ago. And based on the others I have seen in the yard, they won't leave until the first molt. Now to find some tiny radio tracking collars. :-)
