I think they are stink/shield bug eggs, but I don't know about Euthyrhynchus floridanus. These eggs were distinctly metallic and shiny, whereas the photos I could find online are not. I don't know how variable egg color is, but I can't imagine it would vary much within a species.

Beautiful little eggs, maybe Hemipteran eggs? Pentatomidae?
