This is an invasive Spotted Lanternfly. Since you found it in Virginia, please report it to the Virginia Cooperative Extension office. https://ext.vt.edu/agriculture/commercial-horticulture/spotted-lanternfly.html

If you find any in Maryland, please try to collect them in a container and inform the Maryland Department of Agriculture at (410) 841-5920 or DontBug.MD@maryland.gov as soon as possible.
