There’s a large amount of these bugs grouped together on a wild plant on the side of a construction site. I thought maybe a stink or squash bug but can’t find a picture of one that looks exactly like these.

Dear Vonny,
We don’t know where you located images of Squash Bugs, but these look like immature Squash Bugs in the genus
Anasa based on this image posted to BugGuide.  Though BugGuide does not report any California sightings of Anasa tristis, the genus is represented in California.  The plant that they are feeding upon looks like a member of the squash family Cucurbitaceae to us.
