I have never seen one of these and I cannot find a picture of one.
This one was sunning on my garage pillar in early spring north of Atlanta. My backyard has a 20 foot wooded buffer around a small stream. This bug was in my front yard -a typical suburban landscaped area.
The aptly named Whitecrossed Seed Bug, Neacoryphus bicrucis, is also called the Ragwort Seed Bug, according to BugGuide, where the habitat is listed as “Fields, meadows; adults come to light.”
