Moved from Myopsocus.

Myopsocus sp. -- Ed Mockford det.
his comment: "I collected this species on the coast in San Luis Obispo County in '04 and still haven't identified the species. It has apparently become established on the warm coast of southern California. It will probably not spread much north of its present stations, and will almost certainly not spread inland. When I find the time, I will try to identify it, and will let you know the results."

[sorry, Ken -- i screwed up a tad, but not that much this time... Nice addition -- keep an eye out for them! =v=]

Moved from Lichenomima.

Well...
We would have thought you were weird if you hadn't photographed it!
