Springtail - Bourletiella arvalis

Springtail - Bourletiella arvalis
Block Island, Washington County, Rhode Island, USA
June 6, 2016
Looks like one of the all-yellow Bourletiella or Deuterosminthurus. At 100x magnification, the depth of field in my microscope is extremely shallow even for such a short subject, so I've included photos at multiple focal lengths.
