    Might be a carpet beetle or something like that.

    A beetle, not a dermestid carpet beetle. It looks familiar but don't remember what it is off hand. Possibly a nitidulid beetle. Common name of sap-feeding beetles for the group I think in which this one belongs. Of course, can be a pest of outdoor plantings, trees, shrubs and just came inside.

    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.
