Found indoors. I dropped this one on the table trying to put it in a vial, found it, picked it back up, and then promptly dropped it again, and now it's lost for good, so no voucher.

Moved from Beetles.

 
There's definitely hope now
I just found what is almost certainly the same beetle something like ten feet from where I lost it. This time it didn't get away.
