8 mm long flat bug
Here is a little more information on this flat bug and others in other areas of the world. http://www.inhs.uiuc.edu/~sjtaylor/Aradi...
Thanks for the ID gatorfellows!Martin, I think I can see wings so I'm guessing it's an adult. It was wrong way up on the steps of our hut so I righted it but it ran off before I could get any better shots.
This is a Flat bug or Flat Bark Beetle - Aradidae - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aradidae
Karen, that is a crazy bug. Do you think it is an adult already?
