Thanks for posting!

Moved tentatively; cool bug! looks like an adult, too
i wish the pics were sharper...

Moved from ID Request.

ID confirmed by E.L. Mockford

New to BC?
A Key to Psocoptera families of BC here suggests this species was expected in BC but not yet known. Now I really wish I had some better pics or that I did not find it in the middle of a provincial park and could have hung onto it.

I wish the pictures where sharper too! Thanks for the id I was totally lost(again)
