The body is just a shade less than 5 mm. long, the wings extending beyond the 
body a bit.

Anobiidae, possibly Oligomerus. Can you tell us what length the beetles are?

We have just received a shipment of drawings and on opening the crate we 
discovered several dead specimens of the beetle shown in the attached photos.  
Beneath the layers of drawings is an old wooden architectural fragment that the 
beetles have been tunnelling through with great enthusiasm.  There are huge 
amounts of frass.

We sealed the wrapped the crate in plastic sheeting , and plan to have it 
treated by anoxia with CO2.

What kind of beetle is this?  We don’t have a lot of experience with 
wood-boring insects.

Thanks for your help.
