unidentified bug
This bug looks just like what someone else commented as a Western Conifer Seed Bug.The difference in this one is the color.It has a dark brown(not chocalate)topside and gray underside.This bug is on the Gulf Coast of Miss.and are grouping (about 50 of them) under the roof edge of the house and under a huge Live Oak tree.They can fly but not a long distance.The weather here is in the low 70's during the day and mid 50's at night.I don't know if they are hibernating or breeding. What are they,why are they here,etc.etc.
