Thanks to you Don, this is the first Negro bug in the guide to be identified beyond family.

Thanks Don
This one was bigger than the other Negro Bugs I've found.

 
Thyreocoridae: Galgupha sp.
Three species from NH in the collection - once I saw that I wasn't inspired to go further - they all superficially (at least at first glance) look the same, though there is a good key. Corimelaena (the other genus) is about half their size.

Thyreocoridae sp.
Formerly Corimelaenidae. We don't have that many species in our area, and should be easy to put a name on it with the collection in front of me.

A nice photo.
