    On the far left there is also an unknown bug that I accidentally smeared across the paper. I need help identifying both of these if possible.

    Looks just like the bug that I accidentally mutilated. Looking for expert id please.

    The smaller object in one picture (near the quarter) and the single object in the other are examples of carpet beetle larvae. The large object in the first picture isn't any part of a bed bug.

    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.
