Leaffooted Bug ? - Boisea trivittata

Leaffooted Bug ? - Boisea trivittata
Cobb County/Marietta County, Georgia, USA
October 29, 2006
Size: 1/2 inch
I first thought this might be an assassin bug, but looking through couldn't find it. So after looking through Leaf Footed bugs, I ran across this: http://bugguide.net/node/view/76145/bgimage
It seems similar, but there were several of these and the coloring was pretty consistant, unlike stated with it. There's so many which seem close but not quiet there. Any help to ID would be appreciated, as usual.
Thanks,
tom

And of course, if the shots aren't needed feel free to delete.
