Flour Beetle?

Hi everyone,

 

While sitting and enjoying YouTube, this little guy crawled on my leg. Looks a lot like some sort of flour beetle.

I am kind of thinking grain beetle now. The head and mandible shapes match better. If anything knows the ID let me know.

 

Either way I am keeping it and hoping it is a pregnant female. I'll keep it in the small cup for now with flour and dry foods.

Cool find :) its a Bark-gnawing Beetle probably Tenebroides sp.

Yup, I agree, not a flour beetle, but a Tenebroides sp. :)

Ah, alright. Never seen one of these before from Michigan. This year so far has been interesting.

 

Thanks :)
