    Looks like book lice to me. I can see. Distinct head

    I'm sure Lou will be able to confirm.

    Hi,

    Unmistakably book lice.

    The clear separation of head is more than obvious.

    Hope that helps.

    The more distinctive character is actually the clypeus or upper lip which is highly bulged out in book lice. The antennae are extremely multi-segmented and very long.
