Valenzuela is a good candidate, but the animla is young and without wings, so diificult to say. See

Thank you so much Guplox, John Carr and Weia. I had no name for this insect, but it is at least Psocoptera. It looks very familiar to the Valenzuela, and is a common-registered species in the Netherlands.

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol
