Hi, I’ve asked several entomologists what this is and no one knows! Hoping for an ID, thanks! The beetle measured about 5/8 inch long and was found at the edge of a densely wooded area, central Missouri.

This is not a beetle. This is an immature Stink Bug in the family Pentatomidae, but we have not had any luck identifying the species on BugGuide, nor did we find any matching images on the Missouri Botanical Gardens Stink Bug page. Perhaps one of our readers will be able to provide a species name.
