Wildlife Wednesday - Bug

I found this bug, which I thought was a St Andrew's Cross bug, but I'm not finding too much info for that name. So I'm (again) guessing I call this thing the wrong name.

Okay, so I think it might be from the Lygaeidae family. Some info is here on the CSIRO website. It says they're a large family and include lots of agricultural pests (which must be why I was vaguely familiar with them).

They're also called cinch bugs.

There's another good website here from CSIRO again, but not much on my bug.

Oh, well, not a lot of info but at least I'm back taking photos of critters (even when my ID is wrong!)  :)
