Belongs within: Lachesilloidea.

Ectopsocopsis is a genus of ectopsocid barklice found in Eurasia, Africa and North America. Males have a complex clunial ornamentation, often with a row of teeth and/or extensive asymmetrical sclerotisation. Females have the gonapophyses represented only by external valves and usually have a median posterior lobe on the subgenital plate (New & Lienhard 2007). The species E. cryptomeriae has been found widely in warmer regions of Eurasia and has been introduced to the Americas (Lienhard 1998).
