Hi Lyndz ... this is a match for an Atlas sighting of exactly a year ago which was identified at the time as the Milk Vine Bug (Oncopeltus sordidus). I am still checking a few things before I'm willing to confirm this ID. The colour isn't a good match for all recordings I've seen of O.sordidus elsewhere, and the Lygaeidae (seed bugs) is a huge family. More thoughts on this one coming soon!
