Can't find quite the right image,but it's close and it may be in a less-than-adult stage as I don't see wings.
No real distinctive markings. But it's that "tiny head, big ass" thing that makes me almost sure it's a type of assassin bug. / Kissing bug

I had to check to make sure it wasn't a tick.


@Chaski,
Any need to be concerned?
Sure the Internet says it can carry disease and you'll die ...

Oh, f***...I was afraid you meant those.

Normally takes ten years to die from the venom so plenty of time to catch it but some people with heart conditions have died a few moments later.

The bugs go for your lips and try and get you while you sleep.
Has something with their attraction to the carbons you exhale in your sleep.

Also, something stabbed me in the soft spot of my head two days ago and woke me up.

I wrote it off as a stem from a goose feather in my pillow poking through but now this bug has popped up in discussion multiple times over the past forty-eight hours.
