Moved from Beetles.

yep; prob. a Trogoderma
in this family seeing the antenna well is usually critical; this is a female, so species ID is highly unlikely unless you find her mate, but the shape of the club will help confirm genus

Added two more shots to show antenna better. Getting them pulled out took forever...hope this will help. Again thanks for your help.
