Stink bug, but which one?

Stink bug, but which one?
Morton Arboretum, Lisle , Dupage County, Illinois, USA

Size: 10-15 mm
I thought this was a common brown stink bug but upon looking more closely at my photos, I noticed a metallic green color. Can someone help me narrow this down to a species? Thanks!

Brown Marmorated Stink Bug
-

 
It's not brown tho :(
Did you see the checkers and the speckles? They're bottle green on pale yellow.

 
Check the pics...
...in the Guide here. There's a great deal of variation depending on environment, lighting, etc., and a number of specimens share the same color scheme as yours.

 
Thanks, Ken
I did see one or two like mine. I guess I was thrown by an article i saw online that said their coloring was "brown, not green or red". I think they should change the name to "Usually Brown Marmorated Stink Bug" LOL. In any case, thank you for enlightening me and pointing me in the right direction.
