Nice find, Tim.
Or maybe I should be congratulating the beetle for finding you :-)

Who knows?
Some clerids are attracted to lights at night. Some could come in on firewood. I found some really cool, if not quite small, species feeding on aphids on young catalpa trees in an open area along the Ohio River in Cincinnati. You just may be blessed with particularly diverse Cleridae there:-)
