I have run across two of these in the last month, both about the same size. They do fly, I captured this one in a cup while it was hovering next to the light bulb in a desk lamp. We have lived here ten years and I have not seen any before.

Western Conifer Seed Bug

Dear Dave,
The Western Conifer Seed Bug is native to the Pacific Northwest, including Washington.  Since the 1960s, its range has significantly expanded to include much of northern North America, and since the 21st Century, Europe as well.
