Now that I know that locality from which this image was taken, I can tell you that this is Chlorochroa persimilis Horvath.

I am an Associate Professor in Entomology at North Dakota State University. I am just trying to help place some names on some of the stink bugs for another worker. I'm afraid that this one is not identified correctly. This one actually belongs in the genus Chlorochroa. I would probably have to examine the specimen to know what species it is, although if I new where this bug was photographed, I might be able to take an educated guess.
