What bug is this?

Observed: 8th March 2012 By: gugino
DSC_1670
Description:

this bug was found on a sweater of mine. It had several legs and antenna out front. It was more of an oval and light colored before it was smashed. Is it possible to identify it from its half body? It was not pointed at the front and rounded at the back like a bed bug, but just trying to make sure as to what it is. Thanks.

Sorry - it is not even

Sorry - it is not even possible to recognise it as a 'bug', but I think you can be reasonably sure it is not a Bedbug.

Half a bug

Maybe a woodlouse... can just see the segments and remains of antennae in the original photo. A harmless land-living crustacean.

Thank you! I just wanted to make sure it was not a bedbug - that was my biggest concern! :)
