    Single bug found after moving from infested apartment, I believe and hope this is an unfed adult male.

    Extended abdomen would indicate it has recently fed. Yes, it appears to be male.

    Thank you! Must have got my husband, he doesn't react at all. He was moving slow after being found in the Cimexa path.

    Too bad your camera isn't at highest resolution and largest picture size and that you didn't get closer to it to take the picture. Yes, recently fed. Most likely a male. Hard to see the abdominal apex.
