    ID needed- hoping just a booklouse, but anxious.
    Thank you

    Yes, looks like a booklouse. Please compare to pictures of bed bug nymphs so you can see that it really doesn't look like it.

    Thank you so much!!!- was jarring to see it on me. As far as I knew, book lice stuck to kitchens/bathrooms, etc. and not a person on her bed.

    I am adding a few more pictures-- are they enough to definitively say book louse?
