  • $\begingroup$ After researching I think it's a furniture beetle or biscuit beetle? $\endgroup$ – Angel Jul 1 '18 at 15:22
  • $\begingroup$ @Angel if by "furniture or biscuit beetle" you mean a species of Anobiidae you're probably right; the third photo down shows (admittedly somewhat blurrily) that the last three antennal segments are longer than the others, which is characteristic of that family. Which species IN that family I can't help you with; I don't know the British fauna. $\endgroup$ – Arthur J Frost Jul 5 '18 at 2:20
