Explanation of Names
Ectopsocopsis cryptomeriae (Enderlein 1907)
of Asian origin(1), now nearly cosmopolitan; e. NA west to TX(2)
On hanging dead leaves, incl. corn; rarely warehouse pest.(2)(3) Seems to thrive in agricultural situations where few other psocids exist. Occasionally invades food warehouses.(4) Recorded from stored food in tropical regions. Is known to get into habitations and could make it through the winter if the air is not too dry; sometimes passes the winter in ground litter as nymphs. (Ed Mockford, pers. comm. to =v=, 01/11/09)
