I've seen the same bug. There is nothing inaccurate about the description. I'd tell you what I think it is, but you'd never believe me...I just wanted to come to your defense when I saw someone say your description was inaccurate.

I have just found the same kind of bug in my sons bed too. Same discription and not sure what it may be! Any help would be good!

I HAVE BEEN FINDING WHAT I THOUGHT WERE DEAD LIGHT BROWN TRIANGULAR, LESS THAN A QUARTER INCH BODIES, BUT TONIGHT I FOUND ONE MOVING (WITH LEGS) ON THE TRIM OF THE BATH TUB WHERE THE TUB APPEARED DUSTY. I AM IN ARIZONA AND THE DESSERT DUST IS A SIMILAR LIGHT BROWN REDDISH COLOR. I CAUGHT IT BUT EVEN WITH A MAGNIFIER COULD NOT SEE MUCH. TRIED DISSECTING BUT AGAIN THERE WASN'T MUCH TO SEE. I GUESS MY EYES ARE PRETTY BAD.

I`ve been studying entomology for some 20 years, and I`ve been answering questions about insects on the net for nearly a decade now, and am familiar with virtually all groups of insects, both in North America and elsewhere. My greatest expertise is with bees, but I also work with wasps, flies, beetles, butterflies, and moths. If I don`t know the answer to a question, I can generally direct folks to a book or person who *can*. But no spider questions please, I don`t do arachnids.
