insect egg I.D.

Somerville, MA

I think this is an egg ... I found these on the underside of the leaves of my holly bush. Only the ones closest to the ground. I was pruning and noticed when putting in my compost. Now I'm thinking I should take the leaves out of the compost and discard in the trash. These are flat eggs, half inch long, white and woolly. Any ideas what bug they might belong too?
