Indeed it is Valenzuela flavidus..!

I can not understand why iSpot is not accepting Valenzuela flavidus as the correct identification for the depiction of this obeservation..?

Thanks Martin,
(J.B), for your agreement.

Also noted iSpot have accepted it as well, thanks to all.

Still like to know when Psocidae came into use? Confusing as both it and Psocoptera are in use on iSpot..?? :-/ Or, I'v just noted, maybe not..?

Psocidae is a family classification in the order Psocoptera. (I knew that), seriously, it was seeing it used by an authority as the order that got me confused.

Still on a learning curve,
