Unknown Psocopteran - Thylacella cubana
Naples , Collier County, Florida, USA
December 17, 2014
Size: 2 mm
This plant louse was found with others in leaf litter in an oak hammock.


This one must be..
Thylacella cubana. Wish I could find more of these.

so much for the species ID!


Moved from Psylloidea.

Psyllids typically have 10 antennae segments, nymphs sometimes with less. This thing looks like it has about 16(?) segmented-antennae, and as such I don't know what this is.

Thanks for the
information. Wow, I wonder what it is?

I showed the pic to v belov
who says: "barklouse, 100%; must be Lepidopsocidae"

Moved from ID Request.

Thanks, Charlie.
I was way off on my identification!

I'm not 100% sure
...but I'll be corrected soon enough if I'm wrong.
