    Saw one of these guys in my bathroom the other day, didn’t think much of it and now woke up to one on my pillow. I’ve been traveling recently, so concerned I may have brought something back. No bites, and no others found minus the two that made themselves visible.

    Hi,

    100% not bedbug, better quality image may be needed for species ID though.

    Hope that helps.

    Looks like one of the spider beetles, family Ptinidae.
