Tiny beetle - Anthrenus scrophulariae

Tiny beetle - Anthrenus scrophulariae
Clark, Park County, Wyoming, USA
April 30, 2020
Size: 2 - 3mm
Observed on biscuit-root. It was so small I would not have seen it if not for the second insect at the same spot. I could not tell if the small beetle was preying on the (fly?) but the latter was deceased, unlike the beetle.

Association with the other insect is coincidental.
