I have found this bug on my walls in two rooms so far and amongst my bedding. Not sure what it is.

Moved from ID Request.
We can always frass this when we get a better shot from Florida.

Lintus bellybottonus a common
Lintus bellybottonus a common member of the Family dust bunnies. Could also be a tribble egg.

 
My apologies if this was a se
My apologies if this was a serious inquiry. I had no idea that it might be an actual bug, on occasion we do have people post silly photos on here of fishing lures and other objects as jokes.

 
Another choice

Agreed
.

 
Keep for FL
or frass?
