Grain beetle

6329 Hello, I found this indoors in early January. It fell out of some clothes as I moved them. It is very small. I have taken a photo of it next to my index finger in one photo for reference. The photo may be too low quality for your review, but if not, I’m wondering what it is and if it can be harmful. Thanks, Susan. From Nova Scotia

Number 6329 This appears to be one of the grain beetles in the genus Oryzaephilus (Coleoptera: Silvanidae), either a saw-toothed or merchant grain beetle – Click here for more detailed information.
