Moved to Hyperaspis for now (based on comments below)
Moved from Lady Beetles.

Probably
rather elongate shape...hmm...should be able to comment further when I've finished my Hyperaspis key.

I'll have to check through Brachiacantha also...can't see the legs clearly enough to tell if the spine is there.

 
This really looks like Hyperaspis punctata
But that species is only known in the south, it doesn't even reach the central states purportedly.



The "normal" option for this bug would be Hyperaspis undulata, but the shape seems so elongate...
