Found in open field on a cloudy day. I am at a loss on this one, since this is such a common shape for mirids, but the color is really distinctive. Any help would be much appreciated.

Got it!
Moved from Plant Bugs.

Thank you so much. I would never have guessed this is in the same genus as C. barberi (very common around here).
