Re: more like Novelsis perplexa
Hmm. N. perplexa has been reported previously only in California. I can find very little information on it, but it is apparently native to California.

 
dermestid found in a home, esp. in a place like NY, can be from anywhere in the world
the species is widespread along the Pacific Coast (BC-CA-ID)(1)

 
Brighton, NY is over 300 mile
Brighton, NY is over 300 miles from New York City. Thus, NYC is closer to Boston, MA, Philadelphia, PA, Baltimore, MD, and Washington, DC than it is to Brighton. However, I am no stranger to California, having been there numerous times in the past 20 years.
