Stink Bug - Euschistus sp.? - Euschistus obscurus

Stink Bug - Euschistus sp.? - Euschistus obscurus
Ft. Walton Beach, Okaloosa County, Florida, USA
July 23, 2017
This is the only stink bug I've seen in my garden all summer. I'm wondering if it's an agricultural pest species that got lost in the city? or one of the less common stink bugs? I'm pretty sure it's in the genus Euschistus, but have been trying to determine if it's possible to figure out which one. Thanks, in advance, for any help and insight.

my best guess would be E. obscurus
in the future please please please post the dorsal view first, then add other angles, if any (with pentatomoids, the ventral view may be extremely helpful for species identification in some cases, incl. this genus, or even critical at higher levels, e.g. for cydnids and scutellerids)

 
Thank you
Thank you for helping with the identification, despite my clumsiness in posting.... I very much appreciate it.

 
Sorry
I am so sorry. I didn't realize there was an order that was preferred in posting photos. I will do my best to remember this. Is the "dorsal view first" preferred in all postings, or just in certain insect groups?
