The other picture is a different specimen = Orchesella sp.

Thank you!
I am so sorry. These two were in the same sample, the petri dish with alcohol got moved and I spent an hour trying to re-find what I thought was the same specimen so I could take more microscopic photographs. If I can figure out how to do it, I will separate the two from one another on this site. Again, thank you so very much for the identifications!
