size ...
I added another picture. The beetle was about 1.6 cm long

Darkling beetle (Tenebrionidae)
...I would go with Eleodes (subgenus Blapylis) but it's uncertain from this angle. What size is it?

that's a good thought
I was originally thinking Cryptoglossa but with the dorsal shot, they pronotum doesnt look like a centriopterine.
