This is in Central Australia. I found a set of eggs underneath a small green leaf of my tomato plant. Curious as to what they were and hoping they were ladybugs, I placed the leaf in a spice jar, and this morning I was greeted by these teeny tiny beetles. I love how the eggs have now got little lids with "latches". I haven’t a clue what they are. Do you?

These are not beetles. They are True Bugs, Hemipterans. We suspect they are probably Stink Bugs in the family Pentatomidae.
