So, saw this lone guy hanging out in plain view in my bathroom sink. Knew it was no ordinary house bug. It is the size of a flea but definitely not a flea – I took the picture under a microscope. It appears to be some sort of ectoparasite, but I can’t find any examples on the web of one with horns and long pincers. Help please?? Thank you!!

Hi Kay,
Fear not.  This is a harmless, beneficial, predatory Pseudoscorpion.
