friend or foe
Hi I have just come across your web site and wonder if you can help me identify these creatures. I live in the u k just outside Southampton and found these eggs and beetles on a fuschea leaf. The eggs were lime green turning transparent as they got near to hatching you can see the beetles inside. I hope you can enlarge the picture. Many thanks

Hi Maggie,
Despite your excellent photo, we can only give you a general identification. These are immature Hemipterans, True Bugs, not beetles. They are also some plant infesting species, so they are foes, not friends. They do not chew leaves, but suck juices, so the damage is not immediately apparent.
