UV-lit bug

UV-lit bug
Coos Bay, Coos County, Oregon, USA
November 10, 2018
Size: about an inch
This looks like a true bug's silhouette to me and I just want to confirm the order--I know there's not enough detail for more specifics. :o)
(I was trying out my new UV flashlight on the lichens in our apple tree; I noticed the bug lurking in the dark later while I was reviewing the photo of the lichens. This close-up has been enhanced to make it easier to see.)

Moved from ID Request.

Interesting image, but not really useable for ID purposes. I recommend checking out some of Nicky Bay's photography if you want to see more examples of arthropods photographed under UV light.

Agreed with Hemiptera
Possibly Coreidae
