Black and White bug on Tomato Plants

Boy what a season I've had with all sorts of tomato issues. But now I have a late heirloom that is growing well and has fruit on it. I noticed today some lady bugs chasing down aphids on the plant and found the encouraging but there was another bug I can't identify?
There are smaller-than-ladybug black bugs with white spots that are shaped like and look exactly like ladybugs. I cannot find any information on them. Just imagine a classic red ladybug with black spots and shrink it a little, make it a black ladybug with white spots. Any one know??

Sounds like another ladybug.
