Bordered Plant Bug

We did not see any dragonflies at the Darlin Creek Preserve south of Olympia on 18 April 2020—but a pretty, little bug scurried through the leaf litter next to our trail. My best guess is that the bug is Largus cinctus, the Bordered Plant Bug. They are found on the ground or on plants in western North America from British Columbia to southern Mexico. They feed on juices of soft plant tissue.
