Small Flying Beetle Identification

Hi Can anyone help me identify a small brown flying bettle that I keep finding mainly in the bathroom. In the last couple of days I keep finding about a dozen mainly around the window.

    Hi,

     

    I am pretty sure this is the bread beetle Stegobium paniceum. This species can infest a variety of products and then appear in larger numbers. If you just find the occasional one, I would not worry. But it may be worth checking your dry food supplies, like oats, flour, rice, beans etc. to see if they shows signs of infestation.

     

    Cheers
