Chun, I do not feel there is enough here to make a call but I have included the term book lice in the tags until I can find some more references. Thank you for the assist

Hi Stephen, the link leads to my photograph that I have uploaded into the internet. The picture is not shared publicly so there are no comments about it.

Is there any more comment about that image on the site it comes from Chun? That is the problem with smaller sightings they look so different through different lenses and lights
