Family Dicyrtomidae; possibly Calvatomina sp. - Calvatomina

Family Dicyrtomidae; possibly Calvatomina sp. - Calvatomina
Naples , Collier County, Florida, USA
November 17, 2015
Size: .8 mm
Frans, this globular springtail was captured in a pit trap I placed in sand that was littered with Florida Slash Pine needles. It resembles, but does not seem to be identical to, another springtail that you identified for me in December 2014.

Calvatomina sp.
Given this specimen is more pale, it could be a juvenile instar. The pattern seems to match quite well (with small diffs).

 
Thanks!
I'll keep looking for something new. :)
