4mm reddish brown beetle

Observed: 11th April 2013 By: sarahearney

4mm long reddish brown beetle, dropped out of my ceiling into the bathroom sink. Head and section behind head is dark brown, not reddish like the wing section.
Know it's not common furniture beetle as it's longer, wider, redder and doesn't have the same shape. Slightly concerned it might be nibbling the structure of my house but I don't think it is!

I should note, the one on the left is a common furniture beetle, found a few months ago, so the other two beasties are larger. It doesn't look much like the other images of Dermestidae, I'll try taking a better picture later.
