Commius elegans is an Exocarpos feeder. It would be unusual to find them laying eggs on Citrus.

Thanks kim is there a commius species that feeds on citrus?

Kim, Michael, If it helps with identification, I'll look for any adult shield bugs on this plant next time I'm at the Gardens. I'll photograph any I see and link the sighting to this one (4201157). Tim

Michael, I don't know of any Commius that are citrus feeders. And Tim, it would certainly be great to get shots of any adult shield bugs on the same plant species. Kim.

Images of adult shield bugs on the same plant are shown in sighting 4201353. Hope this helps with identification. Tim.
