Psocopteran of somekind? - Ectopsocus briggsi - female

Psocopteran of somekind? - Ectopsocus briggsi - Female
Aromas, San Benito County, California, USA
April 26, 2013
Size: 2.2mm length.
Found using beating sheet on Quercus agrifolia, in the search for more of these . Another one of these ?

Gary sent this one too
I did a dissection and mounted the cleared abdominal tip in a well slide in water. I got a very good look at the subgenital plate and yes it is briggsi! There is no way I could have told the species without this dsissection. Terminal projections of the SGP slant inward. My Karma must have been working just right today.

E. probably briggsi female --det. E.L. Mockford
Moved from Ectopsocus.

Moved

Ectopsocus sp.
Perhaps Dr. Mockford can ID to species from this image.
