Found this in my basement sink, hope you can tell me what it is, thanks, lkb2009

Moved very tentatively, pending Dr Ruecker's input
anyway, something new to the Guide -- thanks, Lana!
but we badly need sharper photos of this beetle...

Moved from Minute Brown Scavenger Beetles.

Moved from ID Request.

Looks like a latridiid
a minute brown scavenger beetle. They feed in molds and mildew and can be a stored products or household pest.

Thank You
