Hi Jan & welcome to the community! Lovely to see a fellow Aussie enjoying nature :) This wasn't on a citrus Jan, in fact, I'm not even sure of the tree it was found on. It's been suggested it's a Lychee Stink Bug nymph, which looks totally correct to me. I hope you can grab a picture next time you see one Jan.

Hi Leanne - I am based in Brisbane and have seen something similar in local citrus trees (see my recent post) - did you find this on citrus? Also I have just joined the sight and I have no idea how to respond to comments posted by others. Can you advise?

Tesseratomidae. Looks similar to Lycomorpha sp. and there is a Lycomorpha rosea, Lychee Stink Bug. But I am not sure?? Just a hint...
