    Found this in my fiancé old treasures chest. They were all over the place. I was thinking they were book lice, but I need a second opinion.

    Look up "carpet beetle larvae."

    Not a pro here. Call me Jon Snow...... for I know nothing, except what I've experienced.

    Have nothing to do with booklice. Please compare to pictures of booklice. These are very large compared to them. Yes, as pointed out above, these are carpet beetle larvae. Looks like a species of Anthrenus.
