Moved from Cistalia.

Moved from Cistalia explanata. WonGun Kim left a very similar image at genus level on iNaturalist.

Moved from Plant Bugs.

Rhyparochromidae :)
This bug looks like BG images of Cistalia explanata (except for the odd fact that this bug's left third antennomere doesn't match the one on the right). All the Cistalia images on BG are under that species. Apparently there's a species known only from Florida, but I don't know what it looks like. I imagine it's fine to put this image under explanata, though.
