Found this guy on my Agastache. I was hoping someone might know what it is? There are several of them. The Agastache itself is fading away, but I don't know if this is just seasonal change or a result of these beetles.

Can't see it's back end well but possibly twice-stabbed stink bug, Cosmopepla lintneriana

thanks, Janet--I think you nailed it!! Thank You!
looks like I need to try to control it--it's definitely slurping up the agastache tissue. Glare
