Update 6/6/15 – I have been informed that these are the 1st or 2nd instar stage of a form of stink bug. I was hoping they were beneficial but alas they are not.
I found these on a green bean leaf in my garden this afternoon. I think they are so cute, probably because they are so tiny. They really look like miniature lady bugs, however I don’t believe they are lady bugs as they came out of the egg like this and lady bugs have a larvae stage.
I can not find any pictures matching these little creatures. I can send one into the UF with a check for $8 for identification but would rather not, lol. Have you seen one before? I really would like to know what they are.
