Sorry for Picture Quality...

Found about 25 of these minute beetles in a bottle of uncrushed chamomille from up to a year ago. We used to buy big bags of it dried from the flea market for tea, but stopped a while back when I noticed a few of these little bugers crawling around in it. Just remembered that I still had a container that there could be some in and found more than two dozen!!! I am thinking maybe something in Lasioderma??? but really not sure haven't found anything associatted with Chamomille...

I will try to get some better images in the future during the day when I have more natural lighting...

L.serricorne
confirmed!

chamomille, you mean?
i can't see enough on your pix, but looks much like Lasioderma serricorne -- the commonest pest of stored herbs

 
Chamomile
Correct English spelling is either chamomile or camomile. French spelling is camomille.

 
Yeah.. Thanks at least I know
Yeah.. Thanks at least I know I'm on the right path. I will frass these as soon as I get some better photos, which should be in the next few days. (and fix the grammer)...
