Another Ectopsocus female - Ectopsocus - female

Another Ectopsocus female - Ectopsocus - Female
Presidio, Dragonfly Creek, San Francisco County, California, USA
September 3, 2019
Size: FW length 3.5 mm
Caught in Malaise trap 31 Aug - 7 Sept 2019. In addition to Valenzuela, this is the tough genus for me. The females seem "easier" to ID, but the subgenital plate is not very well sclerotized and the distal arms seem to have a variable shape, maybe even within species to an extent? This one seems to have incurved arms and is probably E. briggsi?
