I don't recognize this tiny psocid. Collected voucher for Diane Young

Moved tentatively; cool!
hope Dr Mockford has a chance to study this specimen and find out what it is and where did it come from

Moved from Psocetae.

It would be so nice if..
you happen to find a male! I sent Mockford several females from Opelika, but a male would really help.

do they even have males?
chances are, there may be none... i don't know, though, how the parthenogenetic lifestyle is distributed among psocid taxa --but it's certainly not uncommon
