Stink bug nymph

Stink bug nymph

6090   I spotted this small bug while camping at Awenda Provincial Park in Ontario and thought at first it could be a tick, but then compared the picture to tick pictures online and it looks different. Could you please identify this bug for me? Thanks.  Angela

This is a nymph of a stink bug (Hemiptera/Heteroptera: Pentatomidae. It appears to be one of the predatory species in either the genus Perillus or Podisus; I cannot tell for certain. Ed Saugstad, retired entomologist; Sinks Grove, WV.
