Thank you Blaine!
I value your kind help and expertise.

 
can you lighten this pic a little?
detail of the scutellum (or where it should be) can help separate these two genera

 
Maybe these two show the scutellum more clearly
I took many photos of this bug, but didn't want to crowd my ID request with too many images. Please frass the photos in this series that do not add value. Also, I mistakenly said 2 mm for this specimen when it is slightly more than 1 mm.
