Default Bugs... What are they?

I shot a detergent and water mix on my banana plant and I found about 5 of these that turned up dead. They are about the size of a lady bug. Looked up banana aphids, and they don't seem to look all that similar but??? Please help. What are they?

Thank you Sunfish. I think it's closest to that stink bug. I appreciate it.

Yo Jullian: Contact your local county ag department, or vector control. Or try your university bug departments. They will be happy to look over your critters! Place some in a small bag, for ID, if they wish you to!

Thanks, brothertom2020
