Brachypterous Barklouse 2 - Psyllipsocus ramburii

Brachypterous Barklouse 2 - Psyllipsocus ramburii
Bowmanville, Durham, Ontario, Canada
August 24, 2013
Size: ~1.8mm
Found in cat litter in my basement along with this individual: http://bugguide.net/node/view/830096. It's a little paler, but it's likely the same thing; I kept them separate just in case.

Psyllipsocus ramburii Selys-Longchamps --det. E.L. Mockford
