Black Bean Bug

Brachyplatys subaeneus


Brachyplatys subaeneus also referred to as the black bean bug, is a species of shield bugs belonging to the family Plataspidae, occurring throughout much of Asia, and invasive elsewhere. It is known to be a pest, particularly in legume crops, but infests a wide range of plant species.


I found these mostly on wild passion vines.
