    Some background info real quick :

    A month ago, I went to a party at a friend’s appartement (did not sleep there). The day after, I learn that they found a couple of bed bugs in two rooms in which I did not enter.

    2 weeks after, my girlfriend shows me 3 small dots on her belly. Obviously I freak out, but I learn that supposed bites are not a good indicator. So we check the mattresses, at her place and at my place, and we find nothing.

    During two weeks, no other sign until I come home tonight and my roommate shows me this :

    Now I want to add that he felt something on his neck, after he had been standing in the kitchen for 10-15 minutes talking with a friend. Although I know bed bugs don’t always bite during sleep, it doesn’t seem constant with the behaviour of bed bugs from what I’ve read.

    So yeah, what do you think? Thanks!

    Thank you! Honestly, that's what I thought.

    Any other opinion, or someone else wants to comfort me by confirming that it is indeed a spider beetle?

    If killer queen says it's a shiny spider beetle, you can be sure it's a shiny spider beetle

    Not for that country. Still would be Gibbium aequinoctiale.
