Stink Bug Nymph

Dear Jessica,
This is not a Beetle.  It is an immature Stink Bug, possibly the Green Vegetable Bug,
Nezara viridula, an introduced species with highly variable nymphs in many colors.  The Brisbane Insect website describes them thus: “The immature stages are brightly coloured with orange, red, black and green. “
