Having seen a post elsewhere, and knowing now all these caterpillars were dead, these are probably an unidentified wasp egg aggregation with the caterpillars being harvested as a food source.

Andrejs, they will be wasp cocoons rather than eggs. A wasp larva will spin a cocoon after it finishes feeding (either internally or externally) on the caterpillar.
