Ricardo, it's an adult bug, you can see its wings. If it was a nymph, it would only have wingpads.

Hey Photophore, is this the "smiley face" insect? I saw you put that description for a few of your spottings, so I was confused at first! This is some species of mature stink bug--Pentatomidae, so I would suggest starting your search there.
