Lepidopsocidae, dorsal - Echmepteryx hageni Lepidopsocidae, head - Echmepteryx hageni

not closely related to Psocidae
in fact, it's in a diff. suborder

Moved from Common Barklice.

Thanks much.

switch them off for good... they are trouble.
but, more importantly, there is this rather useful photo guide on the order page(1) where you could instantly find your bug, on the very top
