    Looks like a rice weevil. Check your rice bag/container.

    Thank you very much. Source was exactly as you both said.... gluten free pasta packet! Thanks again.

    I saw some in a few bags Golden Elephant Rice in the supermarket, all of those rice bags the vacuum had broken so it was no longer a hard solid rice packet.

    They can get into everything. Clear out the cupboard where you were storing the pasta packet. Pay particular attention to corners and cupboard joints.

    They are pretty harmless, almost inevitable if you have open or unsealed rice containers. I just flush them away when I wash the rice.
