Stunning Assassin

Found this one today. Only small so hopefully it is not just an early instar of something plain or horrible, it would be a shame to see it grow out of this stunning colour scheme. Hope you like it.

Hi Trevor,
While we agree that your insect is stunning, we disagree that it is an Assassin Bug.  It is actually an Orange Black Stink Bug, Novatilla virgata, and we identified it on the Brisbane Insect Website.  This is an adult insect as it is winged, and its coloration will not change.
