An unusual brown beetle-like bug, first noticed as it crawled up my leg in the office. Unclear if it was already in the office before I arrived, or if I picked it up on the way in.

Could this be a click beetle maybe?
Athous haemorrhoidalis?

This is an excellent record

This is an excellent record and worth passing it on to the relevant county recorder.

I'm going to edit this observation so that it appears in the "Invertebrates" section, where more people will see it, rather than "Other organisms" - hope that's okay.
