November 23, 2011
I've seen 4 different psocids in a week. I'm thinking this one's Blastopsocus variabilis?

ID confirmed by E.L. Mockford: male B. variabilis

Looks right to me!
I am going to have to start setting up a light trap! You are making me jealous.

Moved tentatively; i think you nailed it
Moved from Common Barklice.

 
Happy
Thanksgiving
