Parthenicus juniperi
Thanks for the ID! We collected 16 specimens of this sp. in western Travis County from April to July... Thanks again! Mike

It looks like a Parthenicus species.
And i suspect it to be P. juniperi.

According to Henry 1982, P. juniperi has "General coloration pale testaceous, hemelytra often tinged with salmon pink, anterior 1/2 of pronotum tinged with greenish yellow, scutellum usually black or strongly infuscated," etc.

The linked paper shows the key, description, and photos of Parthenicus species, and you may confirm my suggestion.
