Common Barklouse - Indiopsocus lanceolatus

Common Barklouse - Indiopsocus lanceolatus
Mobile (Dog River), Mobile County, Alabama, USA
March 4, 2009
I'd say this March post pretty much establishes the presence of Indiopsocus texanus on Alabama Gulf Coast. What trees am I most likely to find nymphs?


Compare this shot with..
the dorsal shot of I. texanus from Kerr Co., TX. This specimen is also, in my opinion, I. lanceolatus basd on the spot along vein M + Cu1. You don't see that in I. trxanus.
