Can anyone help me ID this bug?
I've found 1 in my bed, and then today seen 3 on the wall next to the bed (in the daytime).

My first thought was bed bugs.. but it doesn't match the pictures I have found online.
It also seems a little more flat that pics I have seen of a carpet beetle.

This is a carpet beetle in the genus Anthrenus; maybe the varied carpet beetle, Anthrenus verbasci - http://insectsinthecity.blogspot.com/2010/03/anthrenus-verbasci-adaptable-carpet.html
