Do Catorhintha have a range in the PNW? - Darmistus subvittatus

Do Catorhintha have a range in the PNW? - Darmistus subvittatus
Vashon, King County, Washington, USA
April 24, 2014
I have been over and over this one and it sure as heck seems like Catorhintha is the best match. But, I can't find any data to support a species range in the Pacific Northwest. All visible characteristics certainly seem to point to Coreidae: 4-segmented antennae, ocelli present, many-veined wing membrane, head narrower than pronotum, tarsi 3-segmented, and (as best as I can discern) beak appears to be 4-segmented. Am I getting it totally wrong? Is there an obvious option I've overlooked? Or, is there actually a Catorhintha species with a range in Washington? Somebody, please put me out of my misery as this is making me a wee bit crazy. :) Thanks!

Moved from Darmistus.

Ever have one of those days? Sigh. As there are only 3 species in our area and the other two have restricted ranges in TX and AZ, I think I am safe moving to species page after all. My apologies for the multiple moves.

Whoops! Not certain of species. Will leave at Genus for input.

Moved from True Bugs.

How about this?

 
Ugh! And, yes, thank you!
I feel very foolish, because I actually already had Darmistus subvittatus identified and noted in the records for my place. Somehow I forgot all about it and obviously got very side-tracked on a wild coreid chase. ;)

Many, many thanks, Yurika, for clearing up my confusion and nailing the ID.
