I found a strange beetle tonight. It’s definitely a click beetle, but it has green little glowing “eyes”. Do you know what kind of click beetle it is?

Dear TJC,
You have nearly answered your own question.  This is a Glowing Click Beetle in the genus
Deilelater.  According to BugGuide, there are:  “Periodic local outbreaks in Texas, mostly along the coast.”  The glowing spots are not true eyes.
