Caught this gem on tall native grasses. At first I thought it was the apterous female of Nanopsocus oceanicus but it looked different. Sent this image to Mockford and he said it could be Pachytroctes. I have sent him the specimen for confirmation. Meanwhile I looked up the paper "Descripciones y registros de especies Mexicanas de Pachytrotes. Folia Entomologica Mexicana 69:5-17 1986. I loked at the description and I'm pretty sure of my ID.
Subfamily Pachytroctinae
