What is this on my new Assassin snail?

Hi. I just got in an order of various items including several assassin snails (C. helena). One of them has these on it's shell. Does anyone have any ideas what they are?

Thanks very much!

It looks like Nerite snail eggs, they will eventually disintegrate and no worry about them hatching.
