Second and third instars of red bugs spotted last week (pic#2) One individual is totally red (poss newly emerged?) Suspected eggs for this insect.
Communally on silver wattle.
Finally ID'd this by finding a hawaiian cousin Coleotichus blackburniae with pics of nymphs http://hear.smugmug.com/Photographers/HL... Now this link http://www.brisbaneinsects.com/brisbane_... seems the correct ID=) Phew that was tough! Pic #6 was found nearby but weeks earlier
