There are many patterns and colours available for the furniture carpet beetle. The black wing covers can make it appear mottled. Adults may find it black if the sheen is removed. They also have white undersides.
An adult black carpet beetle measures between 1/8 inches and 3/16 inches in length. They are dark brown and have dark brown legs. They have lustrous, black-coloured spots and lustrous white hair. Larvae can grow up to 5/16 inches in length, and their full colour ranges from pale brown to black.
Anthrenus verbasci is an adult carpet beetle with a black wing cover. It is approximately 1/10 inch in length with an irregular pattern of yellow, brown, and white scales. The beetle’s pattern-forming patterns will eventually disappear. They may appear blackened or solid brown as a result.
