    Found this after I woke up

    I have been treated for BBs recently and have been sleeping on the couch until my room is put back together. I woke up with a new itchy bite on my hand and one that isn't itching on my back. Previously I had been assured that the couches were steamed and OK to sleep on. I'm reluctant to report this as a bed bug because I don't think that's what I found, but the bites have me thinking...

    Found some info in the forum, could it be this? A Psocid?

    Then again, it could be the top long one in this picture
