This looks like Macrosiagon limbata, a wedge-shaped beetle (family Rhipiphoridae) -
Nice find!

Thank you Flapdoodle! All my many recent photos posted on this forum were taken of insects on my clump of Narrow-leaved Mt. Mint, Pycnanthemum tenuifolium. For those who want to attract a large selection of pollinators, this is a good plant to start with.
