Please help me identify this bug on my outdoor perennial.

Asked June 22, 2017, 12:05 PM EDT

The bug in this picture has appeared on one of my perennials. It is leaving brown spots on the top side of the leaves and harming the plant. It is maybe 1 cm long with no visible wings. I have searched the internet and have not found an exact match. Will you please help be identify the bug and perhaps how to get rid of it?

The picture doesn't show much of the bug but the best match for as much as can be recognized is the 4 lined plant bug.
