Adult beetle, photographed by Niessa Munoz. Identification by UC Riverside entomologist Doug Yanega: "Many species are pests of stored legumes, and easily brought into the home by purchasing contaminated produce at the market. This is especially common when buying from small markets such as ethnic specialty foods or wholesalers, whose merchandise often enters the US with little or no agricultural inspection, possibly even illegally."
Larva photographed by Amanda Steenson. Markings suggest possibly M. rustica, but the rosy color...?
