These native bugs feed on a wide range of native and iintroduced plants in the borage family (Boraginaceae). They are true bugs (order Hemiptera), and not beetles at all. You can just see the long piercing mouthparts tucked up under the body of the insect on the right - a distinguishing feature of bugs.
