Western Conifer Seed Bug

Description:

This dark, large 'stink bug' looking insect was our deck. It was just over an inch in length, and more elongated than our common squash bugs in the garden.

Notes:

It looks like a seed bug and a stink bug - but does not have the markings I thought either would have. Any help would be great.

Coreidae/Leaf-footed Bug, Coreinae, Acanthocephala sp. and most probably Acanthocephala declivis.
