Stink Bug on Blackberry - Chlorochroa

Stink Bug on Blackberry - Chlorochroa
East Hill of Kent, King County, Washington, USA
September 8, 2009
I'm pretty sure this is Suborder Heteroptera, and I'm guessing it is in Family Pentatomidae (Stink Bug). Beyond that, I cannot say. I can only count 4 segments on its antennae. I can't see any ocelli. And I would be hard pressed to claim that its scutellum is triangular. Plus, I am unable to find a match to those lightly colored flanges around the edges of the thorax and abdomen.

Not yet an adult, which makes ID more difficult. Still, this is almost certainly in the genus Chlorochroa. Nice image!

Thanks, Eric. I do believe you've nailed it! Andrew Reding has one that looks exactly like mine. I will move it.
