    Hi, and thanks for taking the time to help.

    I found this casing on my mattress top while cleaning my bed.

    Any ideas what it is?

    It's not a bed bug, but the photos aren't clear enough for me to see what you've found.

    One link no good. It's possible that the part of the arthropod in the picture is the rear end of a millipede.

    But you don’t believe it’s a bed bug?

    Obviously not. I spoke about millipede. Other image is out of focus. Even if not millipede, it certainly doesn't belong to a bed bug body.
