Moved from Dicyrtomidae.

Calvatomina sp.
Probably new to science. It is not in the 'bible' on Northern American Collembola of Christiansen & Bellinger of 1998.
Given the very short 4th antennal segment: Dicyrtomidae.
Given the reddisch background colour of the eyepatch : tentatively Calvatomina.
More pictures pls. Such as facial aspect and ventral aspect.

 
Wow!
This is pretty exciting. I will take additional photographs tomorrow when I am back at the microscope. Meanwhile, I am attaching two shots I took of another individual. I think this is the same species… but you are the expert.

 
I added more photos.
You will see I've added ventral and facial aspect photographs. I also added two other photos that are not linked.
