The attached photos show a pest found inside a framed painting. I'd appreciate 
assistance ID-ing this bug, to determine if it may have been feeding or laying 
eggs within the wooden stretcher/frame and/or the canvas. Specimen is most 
likely from NE United States, and is approximately 5mm long (without antennae); 
antennae are approx 4mm long.


Thank you kindly,
