Mystery bug - Phthiacnemia picta

Mystery bug - Phthiacnemia picta
Terry Hershey Park, Harris County, Texas, USA
November 4, 2018
Size: ~1 inch
Looks like a coreid to me, but don't know which one. Was hanging out with some Leptoglossus phyllopus and some largids.

After further searching: Confident it's Phthia picta. In flight it showed metallic blue near the base and tip of the abdomen. Also hanging out with nymphs that are a good match for some of the pics in the guide.
