I nice spotting Sergio.
I once found some early nymphs and returned to their tree weekly to capture the whole series. I have not seen this set completed anywhere. The young can look quite different as you know. Yours look to be a mid instar. These are probably scuterellidae (superfamily=pentatomoidea) which is a sister family to pentatomidae. If you count the four dark marks on the back, the most anterior one is wider in Scuterellidae
and narrower in pentatomidae
This one looks close rather
