Subject: Bug, egg sac, what?!
Geographic location of the bug: Lake Elsinore, CA
Time: 12:44 PM EDT
I found this on my husbands pillow. I don’t know if it’s dead, alive, a bug, an egg sac? It doesn’t seem to have legs from what I could tell. Please help!

Dear Bugging out,
There is not enough detail in either your image or in the Thing you want us to identify for us to make an accurate identification. We do not believe this is an Egg Sac. It looks to us like it might be an immature stage of an insect, or it might be the remains of a creature that lost its legs, antennae, wings and other diagnostic features, perhaps because the family cat got it. Perhaps one of our readers will be able to provide more information for you.

It’s either the underside of a dead carpet beetle or the larval form of some insect that I don’t know of.
