Beetle - Nezara viridula

Beetle - Nezara viridula
Simi Valley, Ventura County, California, USA

Size: 1/4"
These little beetles were enjoying the fruit on my weeping mulberry this past May. What are they? Thanks.

Moved

Species is
Nezara viridula, early nymphal stage.

Bug Nymphs
These don't appear to be beetles, they look more like bug nymphs. I would think the nymphs of Stink Bugs (Pentatomidae). I'm not sure which species. Very nice picture, they almost look like some crazy kind of fruit too.
