Metylophorus novaescotiae
I call this the tip dot (black mark on wing tip) Metylophorus novaescotiae; Family Psocidae.

Four distinct black dots on the top of the head, cloudy black mark on the wing tip, cubital loop fused to the m vein (sorry a little technical sounding). Great shots this must be the good old MP-E 65mm.

Berkeley Museum eh? Were you at the ECN meeting in San Diego this December. I went as was quite impressed by what your group is doing.

 
thanks again Philip
Yes, these were shot with the MP-E 65mm. Thanks for the details on the identification -- very useful.

I wasn't at the meeting but it sounds as if you were at Gordon Nishida's talk? I work with him on the Essig database, which has been interesting, fun, and challenging. My one wish is that there would be more funding to get the whole collection databased -- we could do even more cool stuff then! But we have made a lot of progress on both the technical and databasing fronts since we started a few years ago.
