If one needs to daven mincha and the only minyan that is close by is davening an early maariv can one daven their mincha shmoneh esri with their maariv shmoneh esri and then daven maariv with a different minyan later? I remember seeing this idea somewhere (sources please).

The Shaar Hatziyon (591:13) writes that if one is alone on Rosh Hashanah, one should try to daven at the same time as the tzibbur, and davening shacharis when they're doing mussaf isn't good enough.
Perhaps one can derive from here that tefillah betzibur must involve the individual and the congregation reciting the same tefillah.
