    Not bed bug related. Wait for an expert for (hopefully) a more specific ID.

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."

    Not sure. It could be a first instar of something we know but in a later instar. Too small to zoom in and see any structures.

    Professional entomologist/arachnologist. I consult on all matters dealing with insects and arachnids, including those of natural history and biology to pest management and forensic entomology investigations.

    But def not bed bug related correct? Just confirming that the word instar isn't specific to bed bugs.

    No, not specific to bed bugs. It only appears that way because peop.le use the word on this site
    Entomological terms. from Torre-Bueno Glossary of Entomology.

    --instar, stage between molts in the nymph or
    larva, numbered to designate the various stages,
    e.g., the first instar is the stage between the egg
    and first moult. See stadium.

    --stadium (pl., stadia), the time interval between 2
    moults (T-B; Tulloch; Stehr); see instar.

    --nymph, an immature stage of hemimetabolous
    insects, e.g., Heteroptera (Hemiptera)

    So term not specific to bed bugs.
