Re US record possibility for this species:
Just to make sure that the species I had photographed earlier hadn't moved out and been replaced by another species in the three day interval, I took several shots of springtails at the site while collecting specimens for confirmation studies. The unlikely had not happened. It was the same species judging by the images I captured, including this one of a springtail sitting on top of the plastic.
