    I found this little bug on a blanket after I washed it, so it was already dead and probably deformed in the process, so I'm sure it's going to be difficult to identify. Is there anyway someone can tell me what this is anyway? I tried to get good pictures, but it was nearly impossible. I know it isn't an adult bed bug. I have found five adults. Is this what the nymphs look like?

    One picture out of all looks most like a book louse. Others are not clear and parts hard to distinguish.
