Shield-backed Bug - Tetyra bipunctata

Shield-backed Bug - Tetyra bipunctata
Peachtree Corners, Gwinnett County, Georgia, USA
September 22, 2019
Superficially seems to resemble a Shieldbacked Pine Seed Bug (Tetyra bipunctata) (??) [Compare vs. BG images 1045633 & 75758.] I didn’t get an accurate measurement but it was in the neighborhood of 15 mm long.

On the trunk of an American Beech tree (Fagus grandifolia) near an ephemeral wetland in a mixed pine/ deciduous forest. (Thanks)
