Thanks =v=
I will know how to handle this situation in the future!

Ken
I found out that P. reductus is a junior synonym, so I created a species page for P. milleri (Tillyard). This one should be milleri. According to Mockford, males are only found in Chile and California. It sure would be great if you could locate some males and see if the phallosome matches Fig. 232 and clunial comb matches Fig. 706.

 
If reductus is a synonym of milleri
Then the correct solution is to edit the reductus page and change it to milleri. Please move these images back to the reductus page. Edit the reductus page so it is correct and then delete the new milleri page you just created. We do not want to create new pages and delete old pages. Thanks

 
Thank you
I learn something new ebery day.

Moved from Peripsocus.

Got it!
This is a new species for the guide: Peripsocus reductus Badonnel. The pattern in the forewing is very pale but does fit Fig 705 in "the book"; subgenital plate also fits with Fig.707.

 
reductus is a syn. of milleri Tillyard...
...per (1) here which has a much wides distribution in Europe and around S Pacific, acc'g to that page -- although Calif. records are not mentioned there, so i'm not sure what's going on... might be just an ommission
the synonymy apparently per Smithers (1994)

 
Thanks!
This species should be listed as P. milleri, so I created a new species page and moved it there. Don't know why the California records are not mentioned in the World Catalogue.

 
Tillyard ...
now there was an interesting fellow!

 
according to Mockford (1993)
This species is known from the San Francisco Bay area where is is probably introduced. Also known form Europe, Australia & Chile.

Moved
Moved from Barklice, Booklice, and Parasitic Lice.

Went back to this specimen and took photos of FW and subgenital plate. This keys pretty cleanly to Peripsocus, a female I believe, not sure I can find a perfect match in Mockford's book.

I have sent this one to Dr. Mockford
Doesn't look familiar to me.

 
Thanks -
Diane! I collected this one and can add specimen pics or send as necessary.
