I found this beetle yesterday. It looks similar to a box elder bug in terms of shape and overall appearance, but the markings are different. It's about 1/4 inch long, and it's brown with a black X across the middle back, and a small white spot (eye spot?) on the tip of each "wing." It didn't fly, but I couldn't get a good picture because it was scurrying around so much.
Beneficial or pest?
