Identify an Insect

Can anybody identify the attached insect?

Looks like they are coming in from the outside around a window.

The picture is zoomed in a lot. The length of the bug is maybe the width of a penny.

They don't appear to be able to fly, just scoot slowly around.

Just noticed if you bother them they jump a short distance.

Also sensitive to bright light (not ambient).

Some type of click beetle probably... Wikipedia says there are 935 species in North America... pretty hard to pin down which one it would be.

Your bio says Hawaii? Take the bug to a garden center over there for ID.
