Isotominae
Probably one of the many colour variants of Isotoma viridis.

 
ID
Looks good! Thanks. Some of them were yellow/green, and same in between yellow and bluish. Does the new pic confirm Isotoma viridis?

 
Not exactly...
First we need to confirm Isotoma : macrosetae should be present on all segments. If only present on the last abdominal segments : Isotomurus. If absent : Desoria.
