Belaphotroctes sp. - Belaphotroctes undescribed - female

Belaphotroctes sp. - Belaphotroctes undescribed - Female
San Marcos, Hays County, Texas, USA
June 28, 2013
Size: 1.7 mm
Haven’t caught a thing in days
Searching this white hot Texas haze.
Not 5 minutes this morn’ was I out
Sweeping the dry grasses, stout.
There it was in my sweep net
Just a tiny ant I’ll bet.
Winged beast, are you on my list?
Wait, what the heck is this?
Your portrait I took both top and profile
Never suspecting you were my Psocodea child
The wizard of Normal will prescribe
Your genus (Belaphotroctes?) species and tribe.
