heteropteran - Euschistus tristigmus

heteropteran - Euschistus tristigmus
Nashville, Davidson County, Tennessee, USA

On American Sycamore Platanus occidentalis. Is this a predator or herbivore?

Moved from Dusky Stink Bug.

Moved from Euschistus.

Euschistus tristigmus tristigmus

ID confirmed by D.B. Thomas: E. tristigmus

Not an ID
but to me it does look like one of the Stink Bugs (Pentatomidae). Without knowing which one it is hard to say predator or herbivore. If I was just totally guessing I might think Euschistus (herbivore). Below is my reason for the total guess. Speckled legs, hint of pointy shoulder, whiteish bottom with black spots.
