Spotting

Description:

Squash bug nymph? Grey body and legs, with two orange markings on back and orange eyes.

Habitat:

Cucumber plants

Notes:

This is not actually my spotting, but a friend's, who sent me this photo yesterday. She found a large number of these bugs in groupings on her cucumber plants and is rather alarmed. Any help with ID would be greatly appreciated!
