Hello from the San Antonio, Texas area, I came across this small insect on a rose bug and having a difficult time to ID it. Maybe you can help, Thanks from Texas

Hi Richard,
We can say for certain that this is an immature Stink Bug in the family Pentatomidae, but beyond that, we are uncertain.  It looks similar to, but not exactly like, some photos of nymphs in the genus Apateticus that are posted on BugGuide, but the markings are different.  If it is the genus Apateticus, then it is a Predatory Stink Bug.  Perhaps someone can comment with additional information.
