I would love to have some of these!
Could you possibly preserve some in Everclear or even rubbing alcohol and send them to me?? I really want to know if this is a different un-described species than the 2 listed in BugGuide.

 
No problem
I'll try to do that. Unfortunately, there were no bark lice out tonight (weather change?) By the way, what's the best way to catch a bark louse? Net? Cup? BB gun?

 
These are amost BB gun size but a beating sheet works too
this one is really looking like an undescribed species I call sp. # 1. Dr. Mockford is to arrive at my house tomorrow and we are going to take a look at some Hyalopsocus I collected in OK that are probably the same species.

 
I never did see any more of t
I never did see any more of these, but I'll keep an eye out next summer.

 
Thanks Bob
You might have to suck it up and get an aspirator. Fortunately these big ones don't fly readily so maybe you could just flick it into a container. Thanks...
