Springtail - Cyphoderus similis
Chanhassen, Carver County, Minnesota, USA
May 11, 2007
Size: 1.0mm body
Elongate-bodied Springtail found under a rock. They have no eyes and live in abandoned ant tunnels. I hope Frans can ID. Is it Lepidocyrtinae or Cyphoderidae? It has iridescent blue scales. Once the rock is lifted, they don't stay in the open for long.
