Hemiptera = True Bug
Not a beetle. This is a nymph of a true bug. I have a hard enough time identifying adults, but someone else may be familiar with this species. Note the sucking mouthparts. Beetles have jaws. And beetles undergo a complete metamorphosis so they do not have nymphs. They have larvae which are colloquially called "grubs."

 
Thank you.
Thanks Harry. Both you and Hannah (under Photo#224254) were helpufl in poininting out that this is a true bug nymph. As I said in my reply to Hannah I think my photo looks similar to the Perillus bioculatus nymph already listed in BugGuide.
