This "bug" was crawling around my patio this morning and my friend and I were wondering if anyone could help us identify it. We think it might be a Firebug, but we're not sure, and the little bit of information we found on them didn't mention them being found in Southern California. If someone knows what it is and could point me in the direction of more information, I would really appreciate it! Thank you!

@epicrae,
It's probably a "Red Bug", which I think is a type of Firebug. Apparently they are invading southern California.
