tiny hemipteran - Megacopta cribraria
Knightdale, Wake County, North Carolina, USA
November 12, 2012
Size: 5mm aprox.
Found this one walking on the glass of a Mcdonalds in Knightdale, NC, while having lunch today. Looked like a teensy Pentatomid, so I collected it, and brought it home inside little catchup paper container from Macs. What is this little thing? Scutelleridae?

Moved from ID Request.

Hope you don't have soybeans nearby

no soybeans around
so maybe this little guy looked for hamburgers to replace his protein diet.
