Abstract

Booklice (Psocoptera) are primitive hemipteroid insects (Bess et al., 2006) that first appeared in the Permian, 295–248 million years ago (mya). They are small (1–4 mm, rarely up to 10 mm), either winged or wingless insects feeding on organic debris, algae and fungi. They are often found in the nests of birds and mammals, including human buildings, and regularly found as phoretic partners on the bodies of these animals.
