In the framework of the continuous-discrete cubic-quintic Ginzburg-Landau model, spatiotemporal dissipative solitons which are highly confined inside two-dimensional photonic lattices are found numerically. The domains of existence in the relevant parameter space, of in-phase (unstaggered) on-site (single-peaked), inter-site (double-peaked), and flat-top-like (four-peaked) spatiotemporal dissipative solitons are determined. We show that the on-site solitons are stable in the whole domain of their existence and we find the stability domains of both inter-site and flat-top-like solitons. We describe the complex instability-induced scenarios of the dynamics of spatiotemporal discrete Ginzburg-Landau solitons in two-dimensional photonic lattices.
