Wheel Bug Nymph

black and orange bug
In the summer I saw a few of these bugs in the field, but I have not been able to find them in any of the fuild guides that I have. Can you tell me what it is?? Picture attached. Thanks so much.

Hi Clotilde,
Rarely do field guides show immature insects. This is a Wheel Bug Nymph. Adults have a distinctive coglike structure on the thorax.
