There are nudibranchs, NOT the parents, on these unidentified eggs from Ambon Bay, Indonesia.

These look more like nudibranch egg ribbons to me

The Orange Nudibranch in the picture appears to be a species of Favorinus. They are known to feed on Nudibranch egg masses. With that I would be obliged to say they are Nudibranch eggs.

Looks like the egg mass of a Pleurobranch.
