Unknown spotting

Description:

As I reserve 15 minutes a day just to stay watching random life in my younger nano paludarium, I discover amazing things. Now a small insect, about 1 mm, coated with moss which lives in the old trunk that I took from the woods near here. I did not know the existence of this tiny being, until he decided to move as I watched the varieties of fungi contained there more closely.

Habitat:

Interior of Brazil, MG.

Notes:

I have no idea what it is. About 1 mm. So small it's almost impossible to get a picture of its morphology in detail with my compact camera. In the second image I tried a very aggressive crop to try to approach the maximum. Hope that helps.

May be a nymphal Psocid covering itself with fungi?

Maravilhoso que voce encontrou, tão pequeno. Interessante que ele procurou se camuflar junto aos musgos, é isso? Esse pequeno ficaria bem na missão do Sergio: http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/1159...
