Minute brown scavenger beetle
7415. This is a close up placed on a paper towel. The bug is very small (<5mm) in length. Okotoks, Alberta. Canada
Number 7415. This specimen is too incomplete for a confident identification. That aside, if it is less than 3 mm long, it might be a minute brown scavenger beetle (Coleoptera: Latridiidae). These feed primarily on decomposing vegetable matter and mould spores; some species may be found in dry stored food products, but are not considered serious pests.
