Hi Philip! The photos provided in the ID link is the closest match I could find for your stink bug nymphs, but there's a chance it's not totally correct as I am completely new to nymphs of any bugs, let alone stink bugs. Also, the aforementioned photos were posted on bugguide.net about a year ago, and I'm not sure if that's confirmation of the species or if someone on the site just hasn't noticed that it's the wrong species (photos get moved to correct taxonomy locations if they're initially placed under the wrong name). Either way, I'm not sure, but it looks more similar than any other species I came across. Hope this helps!
