Hello,

I can't be sure from the photos. Carpet beetle larva maybe or possibly a drugstore beetle. Do you have better photos? My email address is bugman@msu.edu.

Or maybe send me some.

To preserve and protect fragile specimens, it’s always best to submit insects in a small leak proof vial filled with rubbing alcohol or vinegar. Place the vial in a small zip-lock baggie, then in a small box or mailing tube and mail to
