What is that word for when you can't put your finger on something?

It is an adjective. Like ephemeral... but not. The quality of which is intangible...

    intangible is actually one of the words I thought of when I read the main question.  Ill-defined also fits.  perhaps nebulous in its idea of lack of form or solidity (shapelessness) or perhaps amorphous.  Depends on what you actually mean by "intangible", do you mean lacking solidity (not a physical object) or lacking easy definition in terms of concept?  I suggest checking an online thesaurus.  You ought to be able to find your best choice that way.

      I don't think that word means what you think it means......compare to "elusive"
