Globular Springtail - Bourletiella hortensis

Globular Springtail - Bourletiella hortensis
Lincoln, Lancaster County, Nebraska, USA
April 9, 2021
Found on top of a downspout extension surrounded by moist dirt, mulch, etc. Looks like a "Globular Springtail" of some sort? I had a guess of something near Bourletiella hortensis, but have no experience with this group and so would appreciate input.

I always wondered what all those little specks were that jumped away when you are weeding the garden. I don't know why I never bothered to take a picture of one before!

Moved from Springtails and allies.

There, now there's one for our state in April.

Bourletiella hortensis
Indeed it is.

 
Wow, thanks!
Now does it belong in the guide, or it is too blurry?

 
For me ...
not blurry enough to be frassed ;-)
