I wonder if it is a shieldbug

I wonder if it is a shieldbug nymph, possibly forest.

shieldbug indeed (probably)

But which..? I've never seen Pentatoma with these spines/hairs. I thought I knew pretty much what all our shieldbug species looked like as nymphs, but this has me completely stumped. The stink gland arrangement is particularly odd, as well - looks more like an acanthosomatid than a pentatomid.
Keith, we're waiting for an adult here as well... :o)
