    As I was cleaning out my car, I threw some used paper towels onto the ground in the garage. I retrieved them later--out of a spider web--and this bozo was also attached. Is this some random beetle or is it a dead bedbug? I haven't noticed any suspicious bites and I regularly check for bugs--with no signs that I can detect. However, that doesn't mean one couldn't have ended up in my car somehow. This bug is almost entirely black except for brown legs and brown antenna.

    In this post, it looks very "bedbuggy"

    But in this post, I think it looks significantly less so.
