More Denizens of the Invisible Empire     

More insects we rarely see - and (perhaps) wish we never do.

Cigar Beetle 
Cigar Beetle

This critter is probably Lasioderma serricorne, a cigarette beetle. It is very small, about a sixteenth of an inch in length. Like most anobiids, the head is deflexed and concealed by the hoodlike pronotum. It can be a household pest, infesting dry foods and spices. It is particularly fond of tobacco products.

This beetle is about 2.5 millimeters long.
