Something new.  Will it never end.  I found these on the pepper leaves.  The empty egg capsules (white) are on the under side and the black or brown hatchlings are on both sides.  The leaf is sitting on a Kleenex box on the table, bare feet below.   Ends of antennae are thickened, light stripe down the back with a white spot on each side of stripes.  Very tiny.

Maybe a type of Flea Beetle?

See pest sheet 11 in the following:

Thanks for the suggestions. Beetle (BPSF) may be correct.

Red-shouldered stink bug nymph stock photo from bugguide.  This is the closest photo I have seen seen so far .  Thick terminal ends of the antennae, 2 white spots.
