Smooth Spider Beetle

Dear Alex,
This is a Spider Beetle, a common Household Pest that will infest stored foods.  We are confident it is a Smooth Spider Beetle,
Gibbium aequinoctiale, which is picture on BugGuide where it states the habitat is “Mainly houses, flour mills, occasionally warehouses, hospitals, stores” and food includes “wide variety of dead organic materials; may be a dry stored product pest.”

Thank you very much for your help – it was done perfectly
