    Hello,
    I just found this on my bed. I am concerned because of the shape. Help?
    There are two pics. One of each side.
    In the second pic the thing over two the right was a wing or something that came off.

    Close. Looks like a lasiochilid bug, at one time treated as part of anthocorid family; both are in the superfamily Cimicoidea. These are closely related to Cimicidae, the bed bug family, but are not bed bugs. It came in from outdoors.
