stinkbug - Podisus placidus

stinkbug - Podisus placidus
Framingham, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, USA
June 26, 2007
At first I thought this was Euchistus, then I thought maybe genus Dendrocoris, but I'm just not sure (and maybe it's neither!). Can anyone help me id this to genus? This is a night shot - the stinkbug was attracted to my mercury vapor lamp - so the colors might be a bit off.

Moved from Stink Bugs.

Podisus placidus, i believe
nice! could you pls turn the pic 180 degrees?

ID confirmed by D. B. Thomas: Podisus placidus Uhler

Just going through my stinkbug pics (prepping a flyer on BMSB), a belated thanks for the id!
