i didn't realise there were so many variants of orange shield bugs!! if it's previously undiscovered, how about Pentatomoidea tigris carolis. Three excellent captures.

All beautifully composed, but the vote is for V3, there's something about the angle of the legs.
Deepest sympathy to you and your partner.
