Green bug - Chlorochroa viridicata
Pinos Wells, Torrance County, New Mexico, USA
June 17, 2019
Size: ~9mm
On dirt road to Pinos Wells. At first I thought in was an immature stink bug or shield bug. The wing was area was green but now looks dark green, almost black. I am fairly confident with the ID but, if I am wrong please correct, Thanks.

Too cool
Would love to come across this one. If you don't mind me asking, what's the surrounding environment like where you found this one?

Basically short
grasses, some sagebrush and yuccas. Here are the approximate coordinates of where I found this bug, 34.449208, -105.556121.
