Found this bug in my house.. just wondering what it is! It moves it’s bum a lot and uses it to push back it’s wings (which were hidden for a long time)
Signature: Thanks, Cassia
This is a Rove Beetle in the family Staphylinidae. We will attempt a species identification when we have more time.
Update: We believe we have identified this Rove Beetle as Staphylinus erythropterus thanks to Wikimedia.
