Barklice of some kind? - Psocus leidyi

Barklice of some kind? - Psocus leidyi
Woodbridge, New Haven County, Connecticut, USA
September 16, 2020
Found walking on a dead tree that's covered with fungus, moss, and lichen. Very small.

Performing some calculations based on the sensor resolution of my camera, the fact that I was close to 1:1 magnification with my macro lens, and counting the number of pixels in the original raw image, I estimate that the length from the tip of the "nose" to the tip of the wingtips is roughly 6mm (and about 4mm just to the end of the abdomen) and that the length of each antenna is about 5.3mm
