    Hello,

    I've been looking for a nice and good picture for over a week now. Can you, please, help me identifying this bug?
    Due to the lenght of the antennae and the segmentation of the head and the body and the lack of bites (which I would recognize, as I've had bedbugs before) I think I'm dealing with a Book Lice, but your opinion and help would be great.

    Copy and paste the link, you'll probably need to zoom in.

    Yes, you have correctly identified what you found. Looks like a booklouse.

    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.
