grain beetle - Oryzaephilus surinamensis

grain beetle - Oryzaephilus surinamensis
September 1, 2006
Size: ~3mm
Oryzaephilus, probably O. surinamensis - Saw-toothed Grain Beetle, trapped in a water drop intended to merely slow it down for this photo (large rounded temples behind the eyes say O. surinamensis - see comments and link under (which appears to be another Oryzaephilus sp).

We've found several of these around our cereal and flour products (probably been having a few for breakfast - yum :(

I left the location blank as I have no indication that these actually were born near my home in south Jersey.

Thanks Mike! Moved
Moved from Oryzaephilus.

This is O. surinamensis

do you know...
... whether these eat chocolate?
