Indiopsocus bisignatus (Banks) - Indiopsocus bisignatus - female

Indiopsocus bisignatus (Banks) - Indiopsocus bisignatus - Female
San Marcos, Hays County, Texas, USA
November 11, 2010
Size: 3.6 mm
Captured on lichen covered branches of ashe juniper. Superficially looks like Blaste but the M vein on the outer border of the discoidal cell is concave and the wing is narrower. Also the pterostigma has a sharper angle on the posterior border. The subgenital plate on this specimen matches Fig. 842 in Mockford's book and the wing pigmentation pattern matches Fig. 315.

ID
My identification should be considered tentative. I have contacted Ed Mockford who is currently quite busy and asked him if he can verify my ID from my photos alone. IF not I will send him some specimens. I have Indiopsocus specimens from 3 sites in Texas that all appear to differ from this one in San Marcos. There is much to be done in psocidology!
