Description

Look closely and you will see a little yellow and black insect of some sort. It was just crawling on the table I am sitting at. It was weird. It was pretty small about a centimeter or so long. It was kind of stout and not too lengthy. It was small and compact and was just very interesting. I just want to know what it is I found. I take pictures of the most off the wall insects. This one was very tiny and I don't even know where the little guy came from or where he just got off too. I don't think he was a fly or anything he didn't have any wings from what I could see. It is gone now but it was still very interesting to observe.

Description from Wikipedia

Psocodea is a taxonomic group of insects comprising the bark lice, book lice and true lice. It was formerly considered a superorder, but is now generally considered by entomologists as an order. Despite the greatly differing appearance of lice, they are believed to have evolved from within the former order "Psocoptera", which contained the bark lice and book lice. Psocodea contains around 11,000 species, divided among seven suborders.
