Name of screws for pre-drilled shelving?


I've got some accessories to install into holes pre-drilled in sides of closet panels. The kind you'd normally use those push-in pegs or clips and rest shelves upon. One of the accessories came with what look like #12 wood screws but with a very small head, a pretty coarse pitch and only about 1/2" long.

What're these called? I need to know where to start in searching for a bunch of extras.

No, those are not it.

Those are just very narrow screws. The screws I've got are short, stubby little screws, much wider with next to no head on them.

Searching a fair bit I discovered they're referred to as 'Varianta' or 'euro screws'. Like these:

The trick now will be in determining what size I need for the holes already present.
