Beautiful metallic color!

Lauen is correct. These are the same species and come from the family Scutelleridae. The scutellum is the triangle plate on the back of typical true bugs but extended to the total length of the body as a one piece shield. They look like beetles. I've seen a similar one (nymph) .
