Very Tiny Orange-Yellow 'Bug' - Deuterosminthurus nonfasciatus

Very Tiny Orange-Yellow 'Bug' - Deuterosminthurus nonfasciatus
Northeast Avalon, Newfoundland/Labrador, Canada
August 21, 2009
Size: Body Length <1mm
These are not great photos but this 'bug' was very tiny, less than 1mm; I'd estiamte about 0.7mm. I found it in a handfull of grass that I pulled from the ground and shook onto a piece of gray cardboard to look for bugs. It was only possible to notice it as it crawled over the uniform gray of the cardboard.

Mardon,
This is a globular springtail. They're *very* cool. I'm moving it to Collembola for now as that's where BugGuide's springtail guru Frans Janssens patrols.

Frans,
Something in Bourletiellidae perhaps?
