Lagocheirus araneiformis
I agree with Skip. This is a Floridian species that is only found in far-south Florida and the Keys. The tubercles on the pronotum, which are somewhat visible in this photo, along with the lateral patch of brown distally bordered with white are diagnostic.

Something near Leptostylopsis?

That's a good shout.
Looks almost identical to my beetle. Thanks.

Check out Lagocheirus araneiformis

That's another good match. The location fits, of course. The Lagocheirus looks kind of "lumpy" compared to mine, though, and the antennae seem different, but it's hard to tell from such a small sample of photos. I really don't know.

Wait for the experts to chime in.
