This one looks familiar, like something I saw last year, but I don't remember. Anyone know what it is?

It looks like a pine seed bug. They seem to like to get between windows and screens this time of year. My sister asked me today what they were and I had remembered looking them up last year.

It's a leaf footed bug of some kind. Can't say it's the pine seed leaf footed without a better picture.

We have one in Idaho that looks like this, yours may be a different species. Leptoglossus occidentalis, the western conifer seed bug. I can produce quite an odor, especially when disturbed, and most folks around here call it a stink bug. It is in the leaf-footed bug family (Coriedae), not the stink bug family (Pentatomidae). They become a pest when they come indoors in the fall looking for shelter. They are otherwise harmless.

Here is a link that might be useful: Leptoglossus occidentalis

botanybob your Leptoglossus occidentalis is the pine seed bug that was mentioned in the first reply FWI.
