Helmeted Squash Bugs with parasites - Euthochtha galeator

Helmeted Squash Bugs with parasites - Euthochtha galeator
Ballston Lake, Saratoga County, New York, USA
June 19, 2009
In open field on blackberry. Can someone please confirm these are helmeted squash bugs? Any idea what those little beetle-like things are on them? Parasites?

Yes and yes.
Yes to both questions. A bit of overkill on the female, there. Geesh!

 
Overkill?
Is she the one that's getting pushy?
