clothes moth - Tinea pellionella

clothes moth - Tinea pellionella
San Leandro, Alameda County, California, USA
April 26, 2007
Size: 6mm (case length)
This looks like Tinea pellionella, as in Claude's image. Is that right? It emerged on April 24th or 25th.
Its larva never did eat anything after I caught it -- I guess it was just looking for a place to pupate when I found it.
