Unusual nymphs

Eggs first seen on 7/8/20 on tomato plant. Insects first seen on 7/18/20. Unsure if some sort of leaf-footed bug nymphs but unusual coloration caught my eye.

Moved from ID Request.

Could be Mozena...

..but we have so few specimens from CA (and none ID'd to species) that I'm reluctant to make that call. If you can keep an eye on them and get photos as they grow, that would be most helpful.

Thanks--and welcome to BugGuide!

I wish I could continue observing them but by the next day they were completely gone. There were a few unhatched eggs but all of the nymphs were gone and I couldn't find a single live specimen left anywhere.

Too bad
But keep your eyes open. You might find an adult or two in the upcoming weeks.
