I've seen those for decades and always assumed they were a variety of cockroach.

Reminds me of a baby Palmetto bug. They don't like the cold indoors - But they do like it when you leave the windows open on your car at night. (talk about getting the heebeegeebies, when you feel that thing crawl up your leg, and then start flying around the cabin)

Roach nymph.

Most insects go through metamorphosis -- a change in physical appearance, physiology, and anatomy -- from hatchling to adulthood called "instars". We are most familiar with Lepidopterans (moths & butterflies) because of the cocoon or chrysalis. Most don't require that particular manifestation of change -- most simply change gradually over several episodes of shedding, activity, and quiescence. Like the roach. Yours is a youngster. Ick.
