Stink Bug eggs?

Stink Bug eggs?

Can you tell if these are stink bug eggs? They seem to lack the concentric circles I see on most others. Thank you. Please feel free to frass if you feel they don't add anything to the BG.

Moth eggs
I'm not sure which moth, exactly, but a few have cylindrical eggs like this, and as you say they lack the circular "lid" that stink bug eggs have. Also stink bugs, as far as I know, always lay tight clusters of up to a dozen or so. At full resolution you can also see some scales from the female's abdomen that have rubbed off on some of the eggs.
