Moved

Hypogastrura + Isotomidae
The purple ones = Hypogastrura sp.
The white ones = Isotomidae

For an intro in Collembola, feel free to visit collembola.org

Reminds me of these
Reminds me of these Elongate-bodied Springtails (Arthropleona)

Here is something similar to the white ones

Maybe an expert will comment and help ID further than suborder.

 
The white ones...
belong to the family Isotomidae.
Cyphoderus similis, the example you have given, is a special case. It lives in ant nests, in kind of symbiosis.
