I have just recently noticed quite a few of these bugs in my upstairs bedroom. I mainly notice them crawling around on the windows.

They are all exactly the same size as hopefully the quarter in the first pic shows.

They aren't quite as brightly colored as the third pic makes it seem, but that one shows the markings the best out of the pics I was able to take.

I think they are Soft-winged Flower Beetles in the genus Anthocomus.

Ok, good. I was worried that these were going to be some kind of baby cockroaches or something.
Not sure where they came from, but there are definitely quite a few showing up lately.
