Biscuit Beetle Stegobium paniceum (Linnaeus, 1758)
Once a common pest beetle of dried food items in kitchens, the Biscuit Beetle seems to have declined in recent years. Its decline is probably down to greatly increased hygeine levels in modern kitchens. This specimen was kindly given to us by Michael Walker of the Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust for identification.
