pop it in a killing jar, pin it when ready, then buy yourself an ID guide, that's the only way of being certain of getting a correct ID, Clicks from photos, with one or two exceptions are impossible to do to species level.

Thanks Walter,
I'm not inclined to kill anything though, even a beetle, just to sate my desite to put a name to it, .
