Heard from Dr. Mockford
he says this on is Liposcelis ornate! Nice find.

 
Thank you very
much for this information. Please thank Dr. Mockford for me.

You find the coolest stuff!
I'll send this one to Dr. Mockford.

 
Thanks so much!
I look forward to Dr. Mockford's identification.

Diane, I'm exploring an area where I don't think anyone else has ever looked. It's quite exciting.

This afternoon I looked more carefully at these photos and in many ways this louse is similar to Liposcelis hirsutoides that you identified for me before. Perhaps it is in the same family? Genus? Both barklice are 1 mm long. The general shape of the heads and hind femurs are the same. The antennae of both have ringed annulations. Both have flattened bodies with elongate abdomens. The obvious difference is this one has brown and creme-colored stripes, while the other is uniformly brown.
