    What are these creepy insects?

    Today i went to look at my small ventrata plant and to my surprise, i just saw a bunch of creepy spider-ly ants looking insects. Can anyone identify them and are they harmful to the plants?






    they seem to have some egg looking things underside of the leaves, they are like 1cm long, have 6 legs and 2 long feelers. Bunch of them living together maybe more than 10 less than 20, with eggs. Only on one of the leaf, doesnt seem to be living anywhere else in the plant

    im sorry, but i think you're going to have to take much closer shots if you want a decent id.

    Based on the last pic I'm gonna say Pseudoscorpions . Where do you live? I've never seen any that large (if that's what they are).

    But I can't really tell due to blurriness and distance from the camera.

    a true bug of some sort. hemiptera. if i had to guess based on pics maybe family coreidae. Squashbug family. hard to say based on pics. was the plant outside for a period of time that the adults could lay eggs on them?

    OK, I'm not thinking Pseudoscorpions after seeing the new pics.
