Hey bug man,
I recently started finding these guys all over my walls around the house. Any ideas what they are?

Dear Curiousaboutabug,
Your description did not make it clear if you are finding these beetles “all over my walls around the house” indoors or out of doors.  We believe this is an Antlike Flower Beetle in the genus based on BugGuide images like these BugGuide images of
Notoxus desertus.

I apologize. They are inside my house. We see them mostly at night. Thank you for your help.

Perhaps they are being attracted to lights as this BugGuide posting indicates.
