Assuming that this odd creature is a beetle, the elytra are very thin and do not fit together down the midline. And when alive, its motions were like that of a fly or wasp walking around.

The tiny beetle club is my collection of beetles 3 mm or smaller: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations?verifiable=any&place_id=any&field:Similar%20observation%20set=Tiny%20beetle%20club%20(%3C%3D%203%20mm%20long)

Description

A scrappy expanse of silky refuges and capture webs littered with body parts of previous victims. When preferred prey is entangled, the female spiders emerge from their 'nests' and overpower it by grabbing its extremities. In this case, a wasp https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/9319446.
Presumably they inject venom because after a minute or so the prey stops struggling. Then they snip it out of the web and carry it into one of several 'nests' or refuges.
Unwanted prey, often beetles (see https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/9319435 ) are also killed but sometimes left in the web, uneaten. Ants, in this case, Maranoplus ( https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/9319390 )scavenge around the periphery of the webs, feasting on unwanted beetles or other left-overs.

Observations from a trip to the Lower Rio Grande Valley of Texas, October 2006.
Wild Olive Tortoise Beetle - Physonota alutacea (large larvae, 10-12 mm)
bugguide.net/node/view/8350
These bizarre creatures were found on their host plant, Wild Olive (Cordia boissieri - Boraginaceae), a small native tree. BugGuide says that "undisturbed" adults are silvery, but all those I saw had a mostly transparent covering. Larvae are bizarre segmented creatures that remind me of trilobites. They have tail-like appendages that resemble the fleshy appendages of some caterpillars, so I wonder if they are mimics.
