Unknown Beetles - Anthrenus verbasci

Unknown Beetles - Anthrenus verbasci
Washington Heights, New York County, New York, USA

I'm a little reluctant to post this as is because it contains two insects that I'm not sure are the same species. At first I thought they might be Anthrenus coloratus or Anthrenus verbasci, but to me both of those seem to have a more curved separation between the pronotum and elytra (not sure if there is a term for this margin) than those pictured here, but I could be totally wrong. These were found on a glue trap.
