Moved from ID Request.

I think it's some kind of booklice (is booklouse the plural??)
Perhaps someone else can tell you more, as I'm not very familiar with these. I think they're pretty harmless, though.

 
Booklice is plural
Booklouse is singular :)

 
Haha, oops!
That's a good blooper (& an embarrassing one)! :)

 
Haha its tough to keep all those straight!
All the larva and larvae, pupa and pupae, femur and femora blah blah blah.

 
booklice
not sure if that is right, any other thoughts?

 
Mandy is right: this is a booklouse
...perhaps in the Psyllipsocidae family. the pix look good enough to get an ID from an expert -- i'll show them around

 
Hmm
Did you check out the images of booklice that we have here? See: http://bugguide.net/node/view/18966/bgimage
