Pentatomidae - Banasa? - Podisus placidus Pentatomidae - Banasa? - Podisus placidus Pentatomidae - Banasa? - Podisus placidus

i would call it Podisus placidus; will have it expert-checked
the rather short robust proboscis says, predator --which, for an otherwise typical pentatomid, means, Asopinae

Moved from ID Request.

 
ID confirmed by D.B. Thomas: Podisus placidus
