This bug (about an inch long and half inch wide) has been on my ash gourd vine for a month now. It lays tiny eggs in a line and clusters under the leaves. Can anyone help me identify it? It's not really eating up the leaves, and while some of the leaves are browning and drying up and others are turning yellow, I don't know if this bug is responsible. Here are some pictures:

These are the yellowing leaves on the vine:

These are the eggs, I think:
