I found this in my dirty clothes, after I got back from a local overnight convention. I didn’t put any reference in the pictures for lengthy, but it’s about a centimeter long and maybe half that, wide.

Pleasing Fungus Beetle

Dear Buggy,
This appears to be a Pleasing Fungus Beetle, and we suspect it accidentally entered your suitcase.  It is harmless and will not infest your home, nor will it damage your house or its furnishings.  You do not need to throw your luggage away.

Thank you! Y’all do great work!! Thanks for setting my mind at ease. Happy Holidays!
