    only thing I can say from looking at online photos of bedbug nymphs: this one was much more grey, rather than reddish or yellowish/translucent. this bug was very small and an opaque, medium-dark grey.

    Hi,

    Its not a bed bug. If you avoid thinking colour and look at the fine details the antennae are wrong, the leg positions is wrong.

    Colour is a subjective things where as physiology will always give the answer.

    Hope that helps.

    A bug nymph, but not bed bug nymph. Don't know which species but looks like one of the many of outdoor species. Of course, the adult looks very different.
