Santa Cruz, Santa Cruz County, California, USA

Size: 4.1 mm Total length
This one presented some nice orange color outside, but not as visible indoors.

I updated the length to 4.1mm total length from head to the end of the wing.

Wing view: Does it show the needed details?

I'm going to try to find a picture / drawing of these veins so I can understand your comment.

 
You might have...
Borrow and DeLongs entomology textbook, that has diagrams of venation terminology used in Psocoptera.

 
Actually, my assumption was that this is the...
...California adventive species. But if you are going to mention veins I need a reference wing with the veins numbered. Even if there is a system to the naming of veins, I have never learned it. I'm sure there is such an image or diagram floating around Bugguide somewhere...but where?

I should post a photo of the wing venation!

yes ...
Myopsocidae. If you have the specimen, you can distinguish Myopsocus (veins Rs and M in hindwing fused for a distance) vs. Lichenomima (veins Rs and M in hindwing joined by a crossvein)
