Symphypleona - Sminthurinus
Packwood, Lewis County, Washington, USA

Size: <1 mm
I've been trying to match this up and can't quite get there. The legs are light-colored. The antennae are very interesting in that it appears the first segment is dark, the second is light, and the last two segments dark again. There is a white line evident on the fourth segment that is probably a straight line of light hairs. On an outside wall mid-day adjacent to a mixed conifer/deciduous woodlot.
