Stunning images again, Tom. But, again, can you please elaborate on how species ID was achieved? Thank you.

Thanks Eric
The 3 dots running across the middle of the wing seems to be distinctive for this species as mentioned in this other photo.

Ideas on this one?
What does anyone think about this one?

At first I thought it was Psocus leydi, but now that I look at it, they are not much alike in pattern and wing venation. Any ideas?

Not sure
If it wasn't for the wing vein difference, it looks the same.
Philip Careless identified a bunch of Psocids last year, and maybe if he's still checking in he could figure it out.

How about...
This one, Teliapsocus conterminus, actually looks closer:

But the wing veins are not quite the same--very confusing.
