Entomobrya multifasciata
That is an atrocincta lookalike.
The diff = the last segment (abd.6) :
in multifasciata there is a transverse stripe
in atrocincta there are 2 (bilateral) dots

 
Cool, Frans!
Entomobrya multifasciata was my other choice when comparing with Bug Guide photos. Thank you for explaining the difference!

I get so many Entomobrya I have assumed they were all Entomobrya intermedia and have not been paying attention. I see, now, that I need to look closely and see how many are other species.
