Baiting Hollow, Suffolk County, New York, USA

Size: 4 - 5 mm est.
Should I move this to Flat Bugs?
Found on the ground under Locust, Oak and Beach.
It matched it's surroundings so well that It was only visible while moving.
Is this an adult? It looks like it has wings, but then what are the 2 small anterior wing looking structures?

Aradus ornatus Say
Three shiny areas on posterior part of pronotum and pale hemelytra and abdomen contrasting the dark head, pronotum, and scutellum make this A. ornatus.

Moved from Aradus.
