Springtail 6 - Entomobrya

Springtail 6 - Entomobrya
Boulder, Boulder County, Colorado, USA
February 8, 2018
Size: 2-3mm
Lighter coloration than most individuals I've seen


Entomobrya sp.
Could be a pale unostrigata.

E. Unostrigata
There was a molt nearby, would it be possible that this was a recently molted individual?

Could be an overflashed shot...

No flash
I don't use flash with my macro lense

Too much sun light...

I feel as though its likely E. unostrigata since if I remember correctly it was found around other individuals of that species.
