Totally different insect:
The adults are approximately 1.7 centimetres (0.67 in) long and about as
wide, forming the "shield" shape characteristic of other stink bugs. They
are various shades of brown on both the top and undersides, with gray,
off-white, black, copper, and bluish markings.
It looks like a silverfish. Those are the little critters that lay waste to
book bindings & covers, cardboard and anything else that has adhesive on it.
Assorted other stuff too.
It might possibly be some kind of earwig but those generally have a sizeable
and distinct thorax. That is not evident in your photo so my vote is still
for a silverfish.
Looks like the little devil Khan put into Chekhov's ear in Star Trek's
"Wrath of Khan"
Oh sir. It was Khan! We found him
on Ceti Alpha Five.
Easy, Easy, Pavel.
He - put creatures in our bodies.
To control our minds.
