Moved from Frass.

Frans thinks these are useful, so let's hang on to them (if you don't mind).

Bourletiella hortensis
A typical garden springtail.

 
Distribution
Is Bourletiella hortensis an introduced species?

 
It is an holarctic species
Recorded from Japan, Russia, Europe, USA, Vietnam, Australia, Hawaii, New Zealand, South Africa. Originally described from New York in 1863 by Fitch in gardens on leaves and soil.
No need to frass the pics. Pictures of specimens from New York are pictures of neotypes and should be conserved.

 
Thank You
Thanks for the ID and info. No problem with the un-frassing. Just didn't want to leave unwanted clutter.

 
Thank You
Thanks for the ID. There's a lot of them already in the guide so I'll send to frass.
