Wheel Bug in NH?

Wheel Bug in NH?
Nashua, Hillsborough County, New Hampshire, USA
June 30, 2020
It appears to be the black/gray morph. In natural light it appears black and metallic bright blue. There are no New Hampshire sightings listed. Sturbridge, MA is the closest location listed. I've seen several of these in the red morph in the neighborhood. There are halves of Norway Maple bicameral seeds in the photos for size reference. Unfortunately, I lost my macro lens yesterday and the bug reflected light too.
