    Hello,

    I've found those two bugs in a climb-up we have under our bed. We had a light infestation more than a year ago, after that no signs of any bed bug activity. However, this morning I've found those two specimens. I think (and I like to think) they may be book lice or similar taxon, however since they are both fragmented I prefer to have the confirmation from a specialist - so to rule out that are bed bug nymphs.

    Photos are at the stereomicroscope, the length of the two fragments is of about 0.75/1 mm - both of them without head .
