Very cool! I saw this when I was camping in the Colombian Amazon. Wasn't sure what it was and only saw it once. Thanks for the start Forest.

Hi mauri! This is a really cool find! This is a species of Glowing Click Beetle from Genus Deilelater. I don't know the species in your area but it should give you a start for a search.
