Amazing!!
Looks like Trogiomorpha to me. Forewing resembles Fig 28 in (1) for Soa flaviterminata but it is probably not that species. Forewing also resembles that of Rhyopsocus texana (Fig. 43), but is not that species either. In any event, this one is going to be a very interesting specimen! I'm going to subscribe to see how this one turns out! Thanks for posting!
