Ectopsocus vachoni Badonnel - Ectopsocus vachoni - Male Female
San Marcos, Hays County, Texas, USA

Size: ~ 2 mm
This is a mating pair of E. vachoni. The males of this species are always micropterus and the female in this case happens to be also. The males are relatively rare in my experience. Caught sifting leaf litter. Mockford confirmed ID.
