Dear James,
This is an immature Assassin Bug, and we believe it is one of the Corsairs in the subfamily Peiratinae based on this BugGuide image of
Sirthenea carinata, this BugGuide image of a nymph in the genus Rasahus, and most especially, this BugGuide image of Rasahus biguttatus, a species that according to BugGuide is called the Orange Spotted Assassin Bug and which is:  “Ground-loving, frequently found under rocks. Comes to lights.”
