Tail was able to arch forward. Did not seem to be able to fly despite the presence of wings.
This tiny insect is known as a Thrips, and that term is used in both the singular and the plural This older posting on our site with images of Thrips from Thailand look very similar and the best we can do in terms of classification is family Phlaeothripidae, and there are some very similar looking images on Featured Creatures.
