I think many of these are scirtids. They had that round shape and fuzziness. Others though, were the wrong shape and not fuzzy. I'll be curious to know what family they belong to.

looks like many are dermestids - but you have one black specimen at 9:30 O'Clock outer - maybe a pill scarab?

Don't think so
I'll be posting individual shots after I finish up with my New Mexico stuff. However, I thought the two round back ones might be chrysomelids or one might be a puffball beetle. I saw nothing that looked like any sort of scarab in this haul.

Puffball beetle
Positive ID on one. I've shot two other round black ones in this batch and will post pix of them Tuesday, Jan. 17.
