Darkling Beetle
A Darkling Beetle, Tenebrionidae.

My initial thought was Eleodes, but I believe I can see pale markings inside its legs, which would make it Coelocnemis?

See comments here (not same species):


It is safe for Tenebrionidae, but another should definitely confirm before moving to Genus.
