Wow! Those don't look familiar..
What was the habitat. Could you rear some to see what the adult look like?? Tell me more ..

 
These were on a limestone bluff
at MJ Hatfield's house. It's possible she has photos of adults?
...Oh, I'd forgotten she collected some (one?) to photograph. I'm not sure if she tried to rear any. I did get better photos of a nymph, at least, which I'll post before too long.

 
The interesting thing here is ....
the way the nymphs are so close together. Psocidae nymphs (except Cerastipsocus) usually disperse. I'd love to know the species.
