Keep it Steady
Thanks Ornithoptera. The same species showed up at that window twice before. the first time in June.
Thanks for the ID Jae and the comments Leuba.
Have changed the species of this spotting to Megacopta cribraria.
My original ID of this spotting was that these were mealy bugs. I now believe they are a species of ladybird beetle that was imported for biological control of mealy bugs.
I think I have a correct ID of this spotting now.
Turns out these aren't seedlings. I dug one up to transplant. It was growing out of a tuber.
Thanks Ornithoptra. I've been seeing these flying around the yard for awhile. They're always so active I don't get a chance to get a good look at them.
There was another on a nearby log. I should try eating one.
