It looks like a staphylind beetle, offhand. Not a pest species. Almost all are 
predatory.

Hi, all

I am having trouble identifying this beetle.  I am not sure if the wings are 
broken or if they stop and expose the end of the abdomen.  It is a small 
beetle.  I want to make sure it is not a threat to any collections.   We house 
wood, textiles, photos, books, papers,  pottery, stone, and various metal 
objects.  I work mainly with the Archelogy collections which will be moving to 
a new building sometimes this year.   All the collections are housed in a 
basement, since April we have had a humidity problem, the last two weeks it has 
in proved.  When we move the paper, photos, and books will be staying in the 
current building only 3D objects and Archelogy collections will be moving.





Thanks for any help,
Adrienne Dastgir
