I agree, the spots don't look right. But that guess is as good as any. Gracias!

At first sight there is only one candidate possible, a Scutelleridae named Pachycoris torridus, one of the most variable bug I ever have seen. But the body there is usually more rounded without the for Pentatomidae typical groves/markings. The anterior part should have spots as well in Torridus, yours have as I can see no spots. I still tending to Pachycoris torridus, but I am a little bit confused.
