Can you tell me what kind of beetle this is?

Hello- I’ve searched your site for this beetle but I don’t think I’ve seen it. We live in Massachusetts. Thank you for any help you can provide.
This is a immature Stink Bug in the family Pentatomidae. We believe it is a Green Stink Bug, Chinavia hilaris, based on images posted to BugGuide. True Bugs in the suborder Heteroptera are often confused with Beetles in the order Coleoptera, but beetles have chewing mouthparts and True Bugs have piercing/sucking mouthparts.
