Newly hatched Predatory Stink Bugs

Could these be Wheel Bug Nymphs?
Dear Bugman,
I have searched through many, many, MANY of your pages for this particular type of insect. The nearest I can come to it is a Wheel Bug Nymph but it just doesn’t look precisely like one of those. I found these insects on the outside of the house tonight all huddled together. They seemed to sense danger was near and began to separate as the camera lens moved closer to them. They were not there this afternoon when I was outside. I am located in Richmond, Virginia. Thanks for any help you can give. I LOVE your website and refer to it frequently. I am usually successful in identifying insects without bothering you but I’m just not sure about this one.

Hi Carol,
These are newly hatched Predatory Stink Bugs, Euthyrhynchus floridanus. Great photo.
