    I don’t think this is a bed bug (looks like it might be a carpet beetle?) but I’m no expert. I found this on top of my sheets this afternoon. It was crawling really slowly and gave me ample time to find some double sided tape and catch it. Any help identifying would be great!

    Yes, carpet beetle larva. Looks like an Anthrenus species.
