Should be Psocoptera.
Cheers, Helge

Hi Helge,
it looks a little like Psocoptera but the size does not fit. As far as I know Psocoptera are 3-5 (-10) mm in size and this one was larger.
Unfortunately I have no exact size but by comparing it to the bark it was rather 10-15 mm.
Regards Lars

Hello Lars,

it is Psocoptera.

Unfortunately I have no exact size but by comparing it to the bark it was rather 10-15 mm.

The biggest european Psocoptera, Psococerastis gibbosa reaches a wing span up to 16 mm and a body length of 7-7.5 mm.
This is not Psococerastis, but another rather big species, maybe Metylophorus nebulosus (body length 6-7 mm). Compare here: http://www.brc.ac...llery.aspx
Best regards,
Jürgen

Hello Jürgen,
I agree. So my size estimate was mistaken.
Thanks for the link. My best guess from this list would be Metylophorus nebulosus. Correct?
Regards,
Lars

Sorry you suggested Metylophorus nebulosus. So I agree.
