Myoscopus on fence among...who knows what?


The one thing I miss are the large elaborate eyes of one I have seen on one prior to this. Could it be that this is a female? Does the male having bigger eyes fly tradition hold true for Barklice as well?

I suppose the picture could be ugly with the web and debris, but there are those red-orange things whatever they are. They elegant myopsocus looks too good for this neighborhood!

That pale amber colored patch ...
near the apex of he forewing probably makes this one the undescribed species that several people have posted.
