ID please. Pretty sure but would really like to be 100%(6 posts)
It's really better to take a close-up picture of the specimen rather than next to a coin for comparison. It looks more like a carpet beetle abdomen.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.
Thank you Lou,
And thank you for the tip regarding pictures.
I find it hard to get a good close up. I took another pictures with a bit of an angle.
I havent found any other traces after looking through the entite room but I guess they can be hard to find.
Lets hope its a carpet beetle.
I have zoomed in and adjusted the contrast:
It certainly does not appear to be a bed bug as the banding of the segments is missing and the depth is wrong.
Hope that helps.

I can't thank you guys enough. So helpful!
So, just to be sure. Can I rule out the risk of the above being a bed bug? Sent full on insane yesterday and searched every inch of the room but didnt find anything else.
