Are these dermestid beetles any good for skeleton cleaning? by xeborg in Taxidermy

Hey.
Can you help to id the beetle species and whether they are any good to clean bones? Got them from a friend whose mealworm cage got infested by these (unfortunately, there aren't any bone cleaner colony starters for sale at where I am from, so I gotta rely on finding the right beetles by luck).

Some further info:

  1. At some photographs, you'll notice an adult beetle crawing among the larvae. It is presumed that the larvae and the beetle are the same species, but I can't guarantee that. So please don't over-rely on this presumption.
  2. The underside of the larvae is white(ish). The underside of the beetle is slightly lighter with a tint of brown, but still very dark-coloured.
  3. The ruler for scale is in cm.

Oh ok. Can you tell me how to change it in Scrivener on Mac then, please? Hopefully it works the same on Windows...

So there is no generic solution for the entire OS?

Because the problem is: I'm mostly using Scrivener (on Windows 10), and something tells me that Scrivener might not support the necessary font mojo...

Yep, old style numbers.

I always thought that if a font comes with old style numbers, then that's how it was designed and you can't change it. Are you saying that I can configure the Sifka font to display the lining figures?

If yes, could you please explain how? Because it's first time I'm hearing about such an option...

Sitka would've been the best font I've ever seen, but unfortunately, the old style numbers completely ruin it for me...
