    Hi,

    I believe it’s a devils coach horse beetle. Open to a correction from Lou on that though.

    Hope that helps.

    I am happy to answer questions in public but will not reply to message sent directly or via my company / social media. I am here to help everyone and not just one case at a time.

    In accordance with the AUP and FTC I openly disclose my vested interest in Passive Monitors as the inventor and patent holder. Since 2009 they have become an integral part in how we resolve bed bug infestations. I also have a professional relationship with PackTite in that they distribute my product under their own branding. I do not however receive any financial remuneration for any comments I make about pro

    By the way if Lou looks at this it’s a tiny critter. Maybe 5mm?

    It's a staphylinid from what I can tell from the pictures. As mentioned, it is around 5mm. Not devils coach horse beetle which is about 20–32 millimeters, but another species. Staphylinid adults have shortened front wings and regular hind wings. I think there must be wingless ones, too, so in this case the hind wings would be reduced.

    Thank you Lou. It is a tiny thing. I need reading glasses but I spied that thing at ten paces.
