Urgent-What kind of bug is this?


Just found this in my laundry room, sorry for the poor quality picture but all I have is my ipod. It's a tiny black and gold bug with a lot of legs. I think it might be a baby german roach(I pray it isn't), but it doesn't have antennae and seems to be "fuzzy" almost like a caterpillar. Any help identifying is much appreciated!

Impossible to tell from that blurry picture.
Just Google "roach identification".
Never seen a roach with fuzz on it and they all have antennas.

Roaches are insects so they have 6 legs. If it has more than 6 then it is something else. Did you take that picture with a potato?

In the picture it appears to be some sort of larvae but if it has many legs then centipede or millipede.

Judging from that picture I'd say it is a brownish blurry bloblike thingamajig.
You must have the same camera that people use to film bigfoot, the loch ness monster and every ghost.

Haha, my thoughts exactly. I undertand you didn't have a good camera handy, but you really expect anyone to be able to tell ANYTHINg from that picture? You could have blown your nose and taken that same picture and we wouldn't be able to tell.

LOL!! New bugs are discovered every day! If we cant ID it, we can give it a name. Remember, Latin name system in taxonomy. Genus first, then specie. (EG: canis lupus, wolf).

Suggestions?
