Number 7339.      This looks like a cigarette beetle, Lasioderma serricorne (Coleoptera: Anobiidae). It and its close cousin, the drugstore beetle, Stegobium paniceum, are cosmopolitan pests that feed on all kinds of plant material including tobacco, seeds, grain, nuts, beans, spices, cottonseed meal, dried fruits and vegetables, flour, spices, and dried herbarium specimens. Animal products such as dead insects, dried fish and fish meal, and leather may also be attacked. See Cigarette Beetle Detailed Information
