Flat bug

7316.       Insect found on the bathroom floor on Nov 1st, 2021. We did kill the insect and noticed it also had 2 wings lying flat on top of body. Wondering if it is a pest, or how could have gotten inside on 2nd floor of the house. Also would like to know what it feeds on and if its bite could be potentially dangerous. (Allergies, side effects, etc). Thank you! Calgary, Alberta. Canada


Number 7316.       This appears to be a flat bug, Hemiptera/Heteroptera: Aradidae, possibly in the genus Aradus – Flat bug image . It is a harmless accidental intruder; they feed mainly on fungus under tree bark.
