Germantown, Montgomery County, Maryland, USA May 18, 2008 Size: ~1 mm
There were several of these very small (1 mm or less) insects crawling on pieces of wood stored in my garage. I thought they were termites, but the wood isn't rotten or damaged & they may be too small to be termites. Are they zorapterans? Sources say that winged zorapterans have eyes, however, these individuals are wingless but have eyes.
