This was a fun final find for me on this Georgia trip. Found it as I was walking out to the car to head back to the hotel -- feeding on some Asian ladybug.

I missed the focus on this little bugger. But I think there's enough focus to figure out what it is; it's an assassin bug, at least.

Description from Wikipedia

Pselliopus is a common genus of assassin bug family (Reduviidae), in the subfamily Harpactorinae. The genus is restricted to the New World, with 22 species described. Some species, such as Pselliopus barberi, are conspicuous because of their bright coloring and relatively large size. Some species of the genus are of interest as potential biological pest control agents.
