This little chap appeared, as one of a pair, on our recently aquired basil plant.
We live in Sarawak Borneo.
I was hoping to get some help identifying it seeing as I am a complete novice at insect identity... my best guess was a tree ant but appears wrong seeing as there are no mandibles etc.
It's not an ant but some sort of true bug (Heteroptera), maybe a juvenile because it hasn't got any wings. I can't get it any further than that though the legs look similar to this one so maybe it's the same family (Coreidae)
