Oh, oh, unwelcome visitor in the collection

Luckily I have a separate museum beetle breeding facility. So when I uncovered this Dermestes larva chewing its way through some old specimens I have somewhere safe to keep it until it turns into an adult beetle.

I do occasionally get outbreaks of Anthrenus beetles, but I’ve never seen anything this large before.

Constant vigilance!
