If it's on your squash chances are it is a squash bug (or stink bug). Get rid of it! And check for eggs on the leaves and under the leaves. Squish 'em!

There is a look-alike bug similar to a squash bug but has spines on its shoulders (Spined soldier bug)...those are beneficial so don't kill those.

I think this looks like Anasa tristis,
Does anyone see anything else that is similar?

Good advice, Horseshoe. Always look for those eggs. Saves you a lot of trouble later.

BTW, Horseshoe - I met you at the Texas RU in College Station this spring. Anyway, I met your picture! Howdy!

A round-necked longhorn beetle. Looks like Rosalia funebris, Family Cerambycidae, in the Cerambycinae subfamily. It is a tree borer - the Banded Alder Borer. Pretty, but not nice.

If you have a new insect that you would like ID'd, it is best to start your own thread. More people will see it that way, and will get a quicker ID.
