Wow! This is ...
Pseudocaecilius citricola, family Pseudocaeciliidae. Yours is the first California record for BugGuide.

How uncommon is the species?
I checked iNaturalist and there are only a hand full of observations (worldwide). Is this species uncommon or because of its small size not encountered very often? Lastly, do you have a link to a species account/description of Pseudocaecilius citricola?

Thank you very much!
