From PestLens:

During a 2015 survey, the bronze bug, Thaumastocoris peregrinus (Hemiptera: Thaumastocoridae), was found infesting Eucalyptus camaldulensis (river red gum) and E. globulus (Tasmanian blue gum) trees in Mexico. This is the first report of T. peregrinus in Mexico and in North America.
