I have gone through Evans's book three times hoping to at least find something similar, but no success. This is the only photo that I managed to get of this beetle before it took off, so no measurement -- body length estimated to be somewhere in 5-10 mm range. Attracted to MV lamp / blacklight set up near small horse pasture near stands of mixed pine-hardwood.

Much obliged
Thanks, Blaine! (And it is in Evans’ book, duh)
