Reality Check: Is this Taylorilygus apicalis? - Taylorilygus apicalis
Mason Park, Irvine, Orange County, California, USA

Moved from ID Request.

Perhaps ...
Something in the neighborhood of Broken-backed Bug?
EDIT: Just noticed Taylorilygus apicalis :)

 
It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood.
Thanks for confirming my suspicion.

 
Distribution
Apparently, this little bugger gets to Texas, then takes the red-eye flight to California, completely by-passing New Mexico and Arizona.

 
I think they travel incognito and that there are lots of them.
If memory serves, we once had honey bees everywhere except for some "I" state, i.e. Idaho or Iowas. Bet we're covered now.
