About 10mm long. On, I think, an hibiscus leaf in downtown Sydney, Australia.

Seed Bug Nymph we believe

Hi Mike,
We are more inclined toward a tentative identification of your insect being an immature Seed Bug in the family Lygaeidae.  We looked through the family page on the Brisbane Insect Website and did not locate any matches, but several of the nymphs pictures look similar to your specimen, though without the distinctive coloration.

Seed Bug Nymph, we believe

    Maybe it’s some sort of cicada nymph?

      This is not a Cicada Nymph, but True Bugs and Cicadas are in the same insect order so they have some physical similarities.
