Cerastipsocus trifasciatus
This is really interesting, these are nymph Cerastipsocus trifasciatus; Family Psocidae. I have never seen them in the wild before but based on the photos in Bug Guide they seem to practice the same communal grazing behaviour that I often see in their nearest relative C. venosus. C. venosus nymphs have yellow and brown stripped abdomens and C. trifasciatus nymphs can be ID by their red heads and white and brown stripped abdomens.
