Unknown Beetle - Chinavia hilaris

Unknown Beetle - Chinavia hilaris
Jefferson Hills, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, USA

Any ID help with this beetle would be appreciated.


Moved from ID Request.

Yes, Pentatomidae nymph
You can tell that it's no beetle by the antennae (only three members, beetles have more) No hard wings covering the abdomen as in most typical beetles, and the sucking mouth parts visible if you turn it over. Also, these nymphs resemble adult true bugs, whereas young beetles are first grubs, then pupae - with no similarity to the adult beetle

I believe this is a nymph of a Green Stink Bug.
