Moved from Melanotus.

I have...
some doubts about this. Kinda looks like a certain species of Eucnemidae to. It's tough to tell from the frontal angle of the second image.

 
If it’s an Eucnemid
It looks like this would be the best fit. I think I can see the offset 2nd antennomere in the second photo too

Edit: I also brightened the photos to make the details clearer

 
hmmm...
it sure has the gestalt for Melanotus castanipes but now that I think about it, it's too small based on the screen mesh it's sitting on!

In the second pic, the basal antennomere does indeed look eucnemidish. Let's move back to superfamily for now.

Moved, Melanotus sp.
Melanotus castanipes comes to mind, but diagnostic features not visible and the black background doesn't help.

Moved from Click Beetles.

 
I have a front shot
It’s not the best but it may help
