Seed Bug Redux
First noticed in the yard exactly 2 years ago, here are a few whitecrossed seed bugs (Neacoryphus bicrucis) blown in again from somewhere. They feed and breed on senecio as noted here, but I found them this time on the acacia iteaphylla and also on the milkweed. (Bugguide notes this species is poorly known but has been reported on milkweed, so my finding on milkweed may or may not be random wind-related distribution!) They are pretty little (about 3/8") buggies.
