Dear all,

In April 2017 we recorded a new booklice not seen previously in our museum. 
Darren Mann identified as Lepinotus reticulatus and I have included a picture 
of the species which is identifiable by its thick hairs and stumpy wings.

Curious to know if any other UK museums seen this pest before?

All the best,

Hi,

The short-winged one is Lepinotus reticulatus - it's a domestic species and 
potentially a pest. New to our list I believe.
