Springtail, Pogonognathellus elongatus - Pogonognathellus elongatus

Springtail, Pogonognathellus elongatus - Pogonognathellus elongatus
Daniels Area, Patapsco Valley State Park, Howard County, Maryland, USA
December 29, 2018
Pogonognathellus elongatus found on the underside of a Tree Ear fungus, Auricularia americana (synonym Jelly Ear, Auricularia auricula-judae, from the Old World). It was identified to me as a Springtail on Facebook, from which I determined species from https://www.marylandbiodiversity.com/viewSpecies.php?species=17334 and the relevant BugGuide page here.
