Observation notes: Saw this guy on a white rail post on my front porch then a short time later on a wood step. in central Virginia. The closest plant is a Chinese Boxwood bush. Bright, sunny day. May be of note the house is surrounded by deciduous forest, varied plant life - oaks, elms, poplars, dogwoods, loblolly pines, other conifers. It reminded me of twigs and moss in appearance.
