Larder beetle

6780.  I find one of these little beetles on carpeted areas in my house once every two months independent of the season. Is it a variation of a carpet beetle? Photos taken of a specimen on ceramic for clarity, one from above and one of the underside to help identification. Thanks. Port Hope, Ontario. Canada

Number 6780. This is a larder beetle, Dermestes lardarius (Coleoptera: Dermestidae) or a close relative. Click here  for some control recommendations.
