How can I tell the difference between capsid bugs?

How do I tell the difference between an apple capsid insect and other types of capsid bugs?

"The identification of capsid bugs is simple due to their easily recognized appearance. For example, this bug has a dark-colored shield that has a remarkable heart or triangle shape on it. The color of this marking can vary from yellow-white to orange. The wing tips have a small circle that is the same color as the heart or triangle. A brown-colored band is also often seen across the middle of the body. Furthermore, the legs of the capsid bug are covered in spots."
