Stink bug - Halyomorpha halys

Stink bug - Halyomorpha halys
Great Falls, Fairfax County, Virginia, USA
January 1, 2013
Size: About 10-12 mm
Wet have lots of stinkbugs in our yard and in our house. They are moderately annoying. I gather they are an invasive non-native species. Is this brown stinkbug (Halyomorpha halys) or a green stinkbug?

v belov's comment on My photos
Thanks for the kind words. I'm a science-minded amateur photographer who enjoys photographing insects, not an entomologist. Detailed photos are what I can contribute.

 
White bands on Halyomorpha halys's antennae
So those white bands are characteristic of Halyomorpha halys?

They are pretty subtle.

 
They're one of the distinguishing marks...
...and they're much more obvious in your close-up.

 
interesting... i was totally unaware of that

The white bands on the antennae...
...aren't terribly prominent, but I'm still voting for the BMSB. Hold on for a second opinion, though.

Full-body image
@Ken, I figured i would need to submit a full-body image as well. I just uploaded one.

I vote for H. halys...
Sure would be nice to see the whole bug, though. :)
