Bark lice and book lice (Psocodea: 'Psocoptera')

A total of 71 species of bark and book lice have been recorded from Finland. A minority of the species occurs exclusively indoors. Together with parasitic lice (Phthiraptera), psocopterans form the clade Psocodea. The DNA barcoding of Finnish ‘Psocoptera’ will start in late 2012 by sequencing 32 species from the bark louse families Caeciliusidae, Amphipsocidae, Stenopsocidae and Psocidae.
