Flower Beetle

5676 Hello, I live in the Ottawa area and a few of these tiny bugs have been in my bathroom this week. The photo doesn’t show but it’s quite tiny and appears to have wings that fold over the back end. If you have an idea as to what it might be I would really appreciate hearing from you.  Sincerely,  Christine

This is a soft-winged flower beetle (Coleoptera: Melyridae); it looks like Anthocomus equestris – see http://tinyurl.com/gtxgprz for an image. They appear to be pollen feeders. Ed Saugstad, retired entomologist; Sinks Grove, WV.
