florida predatory stink bug
I live in michigan and have found these guys in the same spot the last two summers. There is a gathering of them that like to hide out in some old bricks by my blackberry bushes. So they are in Michigan also.

Moved to guide
Ron's ID looks spot on to me.

You will see the scientific name shows up automatically when an image is moved to the correct level in the guide - no need to edit your title to include it, in fact doing so can be confusing, since it implies you already knew the name when the photo was submitted. : )

Not an expert but...
Please take a look at Florida Predatory Stink Bug (Euthyrhynchus floridanus)



I cropped your image to make the bug more visible.

Welcome to BugGuide!

Take a look at the "Data" tab...
After clicking on the thumbnail you will see 7 tabs above the image. Taxonomy, Browse, Info, Images, Links, Books and Data.

The Data tab will display a map of the United States with states darkened in where these have been reported. Please keep in mind that this map only covers BugGuide. Just because your state may not have any reports of an insect doesn't mean that you should not find one there. It could be that no contributor has posted an image from that state.

In this case, North Carolina has had images of Florida Predatory Stink Bugs submitted to BugGuide. In fact, the thumbnailed image above from Lynette was taken in North Carolina :)
