Dolichopsylla stylosus
I believe that these images are most likely Dolichopsylla stylosus. It can be up to 6mm in length. Hystrichopsylla has a genal comb while Dolichopsylla does not. In these images, the genal comb is either not visible or appears to be absent.

 
thanks!


thanks much for this moster, Ryan
