Thank you for posting to BugGuide!
You were lucky though, that the person who correctly identified your Kudzu Bug was very familiar with the species and recognized it from just a spec of an image. Please, for next time, Crop your photo so it's mostly bug, not background. You and the editors can zoom in to a degree, but all others cannot...

 
I did it for you as an example
and I'm moving it to the guide pages because we do not have many examples from VA
