Juniper Stink Bug - Banasa euchlora

Juniper Stink Bug - Banasa euchlora
Whitepath Road area, Gilmer County, Georgia, USA
October 25, 2011
Size: 8-9mm body length
Found bug on its back. Bug looked like it was on its last legs until I took it out into the sun. It warmed up and eventually flew away strongly. I measured the body length, and it was probably closer to 8mm.

Location is a mixed deciduous forest at 1600' in north Georgia mountains. There are cedar (Juniper) trees, including Eastern Red Cedar (Juniper), in the area.

Appears to be Banasa euchlora - Juniper Stink Bug: If correct ID, this will be a first data-point for Georgia.
