Thank you all...
for the help, I did notice that I had posted one before only it was from Arkansas...

Moved from Ground Beetles.

Brachinus sp.
hard to ID, even with specimen in-hand, but the color of the elytral apices may be diagnostic(?).

 
Brachinus difficult yes, but ...
"Brachinus adustipennis" happens to be a species reasonably easy to recognize from image alone based on the following: brownish elytra, elytral epipleurae pale, knees darkened, and location. I've seen specimens with elytra more uniformly brownish than this one so I humbly admit there could be another species to consider.

 
ID confirmed by Terry Erwin: Brachinus adustipennis
