Varied carpet beetle

Anthrenus verbasci


a very tiny beetle, about the size of a pin head. Mottled brown and white markings, short antennae.


A few of these small beetles were crawling around on cilantro blossoms. Possible pollinators or hunting for other smaller bugs?

Thank you Aren.roysland! I saw these at my office a few years ago, but had never seen them in nature. I wasn't sure. :)
