Brown Marmorated Stink Bug - Halyomorpha halys

Brown Marmorated Stink Bug - Halyomorpha halys
Rancocas Woods, Burlington County, New Jersey, USA
August 17, 2008
Found on a potted hibiscus that lives outside in the summer. I couldn't get an accurate size, but maybe 5 mm? Can anyone ID family? Pentatomidae maybe, or even Coreidae?
edit: maybe Halyomorpha halys (Brown Marmorated Stink Bug)?

from J. E. McPherson: "
probably 
Halyomorpha 
halys"

Yes, looks like Brown Marmorated

 
Thanks again
Not a great image, and we do have some nymphs in the guide... Keep or Frass? Frass I think.

 
We only see one other nymph this age
in the guide. We'd keep it. Seems everyone has had difficulty getting sharp images of this one!

It kept running to the other side of the leaf. I would flip the leaf and quickly shoot, then try again as it was on the other side!
