    Opened a package from amazon, a fabric storage bin, and found this dead bug inside. I know it doesn't look exactly like a bedbug, but an expert ID would be much appreciated for peace of mind, as I opened the package and left it in my room for several days. Thank you all for your help, really it is greatly appreciated !!

    Exactly. Looks nothing like a bed bug. Different order-Blattodea. It's a de-alate termite reproductive. Flies after leaving nest along with thousands of other ones, lands, mates, wings crack off at demarcation line. Must have crawled into a box during a nuptial flight.
