Hi,
I found these two on a carcass of a zebra in Ugnada, Africa. Time of year was August. Any ideas what these might be?
Thanks,

Shield Bugs

Dear Gideon,
We are having a difficult time finding any matching images of your True Bugs which are in the superfamily Pentatomoidea, which includes Stink Bugs and Shield Bugs.  They are not pictured on Some Kenyan Hemiptera and Homoptera, and we could not find them on iSpot.

Update
Thanks to a comment from Cesar Crash, we have matching images from Alamy indicating this is
Solenosthedium liligerum.  There are also several images on iSpot.
