Possible Pseudocaecilius citricola - Pseudocaecilius citricola
Galleria area, Houston, Harris County, Texas, USA
April 13, 2013
Confirmation desired, if possible. Adult Pseudocaecilius citricola were numerous at this light recently. This pic is from last spring, but there was an adult probably of that species seen that night, as well.

Probably correct, Pseudocaecilius nymph --det. E.L. Mockford
Moved from Unidentified eggs, nymphs, and brachypterous adults.

so you were right about this one, and i was right to question that other ID [now corrected]; keep them coming, John!

we have similar things under Trichopsocus

...although i doubt that ID is correct

Moved from Barklice, Booklice, and Parasitic Lice.

Thanks for the info
I withdraw my guess!

i wasn't questioning your guess, John
immature stages are poorly understood [no surprise there], but the barklice make things a bit easier by being good parents and spending much time with their brood, which much facilitates the task of associating kids with adults.
what complicates things is the diversity of the fauna: Tom Murray has photographed over a dozen barklice spp. during a day, all basically in the same small patch; i often see 5-6 spp. showing up simultaneously at lights... so it's hard to assume a connection unless you see them in numbers together with the parents

No worries :)
I appreciate the info.
