    I recently found a bug in my hallway and wanted to see if anyone can ID it. I work at a college and i'm always worried that one day a bed bug might catch a ride on me. Below are some pictures of the bug i caught. Its color is a light brown / tan if the pictures don't show it well enough

    If more pictures are needed please let me know. I've put it in a ziplock bag.

    After doing my own research I think this may be a female odd beatle. Can anyone confirm this ?

    Yes. Correct.

    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.
