Shield-backed Bug - Tetyra bipunctata

Shield-backed Bug - Tetyra bipunctata
Callaway Gardens, Georgia, USA
September 20, 2007
Believe this to be a shield-backed Bug, perhaps in the genus Eurygaster. Would appreciate a confirmation and the species if known.

Moved from Shield-backed Bugs.

Joe Eger det.: Tetyra bipunctata (Say)

can I just say wow?
that is a really flattering picture of this bug

Family correct, but not genus Eury*gaster
