    Hello! I found this today, underneath my bedsheets, on the mattress. I’m starting to freak out and would like to know if it’s a bed bug.

    Thorax (and hemelytra) and abdomen of a bed, but not a bed bug.

    I’m sorry, I’m not sure I understand what you meant. Could you explain it?

    So sorry. Thorax (and hemelytra) and abdomen of a true bug, but not a bed bug. Most of body of an insect. No head.
