Another new one for bugguide
I have a feeling that even with all the new species you've identified, there's still a ton more we haven't got yet.

Peripsocus subfasciatus
No Cubital Loop (a U shaped vein on the top-middle of the forewing) narrows down the families quickly. Smokey gray wings would put us in the genus Perispocus.

But note how the gray triangles at the wing tips (distal forewing) don't have a clear rectangle at their centre (unlike photo#15112 and photo#150111)? The pattern here matches Peripsocus subfasciatus; Family Peripsocidae.
