Hello! This bug was on my exterior kitchen door today (May 18th) in Edmonds, Washington. It was maybe 1/4″ long, if I remember correctly. I tried googling, reverse image searching, asking friends, and using your website, but to no avail. I’d love to know more about it. Thanks for your time! 🙂

Dear Cat,
With the strong white background and the graphic, saturated coloration on this Whitecrossed Seed Bug,
Neacoryphus bicrucis, your image looks like a professional studio portrait.

That’s it!!! And that was so fast, thank you!!!
FYI I took that photo with my iPhone and a clip-on macro lens that I got in a kit for ~$7. Whitened the background with Facetune. Modern technology is pretty cool. 🙂
