Sink bug nymph

5771  Any idea what this bug is?  I found it on a leaf in my garden on August 6th, 2016, Mississauga, Ontario.  Regards,  Mike C

This is a nymph of a stink bug (Hemiptera/Heteroptera: Pentatomidae); possibly in the genus Podisus  – see for an example. Bugs in this genus are called soldier bugs; they are general predators on other small arthropods, including many garden pests. Ed Saugstad, retired entomologist; Sinks Grove, WV.
