I'm hoping someone can help me identify this insect.
We've recently had our bathroom floor ripped up to deal with a leaking pipe and now keep finding these visitors.
They have an incredibly ungainly gait (I've often asumed they were dying) unless on a flat shiny surface when they can scoot around fairly quickly.
Apologies for the terrible picture - best I can do on my phone...
I think it is a Golden Spider Beetle Niptus hololeucus. We've had these on the forum a few times, here is an example.
