Frassed
Moved from Darkling Beetles.

Like I Fox said, probably an Akis species...
Compare to this image... Therefore this is likely an overseas sighting, and not covered by Bugguide.

Interesting
It looks like a member of the old world genus Akis to me

 
Yeah, thinking this is an overseas sighting...
It'd be REALLY neat if this was a US native though...

Please add state and county info...
As well as sighting date. This is quite an interesting looking Teneb for sure, and that information will help up in finding out what it is. :)

Moved from ID Request.

Looks like a Darkling Beetle, though it could be a Zopherid.
