Found this in my home tonight. Curious what it is. Sorry for the low res - poor man's macro (quick snapshot from my iPhone).

Anyone know what they are called?

Thanks!

It looks like a Seed or Myriad bug. These are a big group of true bugs, Heteroptera. I couldn't tell you which species it is as there are many and I'm not from your area. However, I've added some links below including to a similar looking species, which should be a starting point. I'm not saying it is the species below and it is just an example of the general type. It nevertheless does appear to have quite a few similarities, so it is likely a related species, even if not this particular one.
