    Very different looking. A beetle. It's a species of Oryzaephilus. Stored food product pest basically.

    Professional entomologist/arachnologist. I consult on all matters dealing with insects and arachnids, including those of natural history and biology to pest management and forensic entomology investigations.

    Thank you so much, loubugs!

    While continuing my search today, I found this little fella.
    Seems to look a bit like a bed bug, possibly 1st instar.
    But it also could very well be a book louse.
    Can anyone ID?
    Thanks!
