Western Conifer Seed Bug

Bloodsucking Conenose
I have tentatively identified this as a member of the Assassin Bug family, namely Triatoma Sanguisuga-"Bloodsucking Conenose" Could you please confirm or correct this identification. There have been several flying around the house lately. Thanks,

Hi Albert,
This is a Western Conifer Seed Bug and you need not fear getting bitten.
