Great shots of ...
Lithoseopsis hellmani, first discovered in Ezel's Cave in San Marcos! I may ask you later if I can use a high res version of one of your shots.

My mistake!
As soon as my head hit the pillow last night I realized my mistake.

Re: Barklouse
I ran across some images of Stimulopalpus japonicus, which seems like a closer match and has been found in Harris Co.

Re: Lithoseopsis hellmani
Thanks for the ID, Diane, and feel free to email me about using a photo.
