Size: 1 centimeter?
Hoping the smiley face pattern on the back will be enough for an ID. Was photographing a Wild Indigo Duskywing and noticed this in the image later.

Moved from ID Request.

ID has been given to the degree possible, and the image isn't needed for the Guide. It will be visible here for 30 days until removed by the system.

Harmostes, a Rhopalid
Likely H. fraterculus, but I'd like a clearer view of the antennae to be sure.

Thanks Ken.
Unfortunately, since I did not see this insect until I was reviewing the photos, I did not get any better shots or different angles.
