Elongate-bodied Springtail - Isotomidae

Elongate-bodied Springtail - Isotomidae
Baiting Hollow, Suffolk County, New York, USA
March 1, 2009
Size: very tiny
Found in leaf litter.
This showed up in a photo I was trying to take of something else.
It was so small that when looking at the place where it was I could not see it as something identifiable even with magnifying glasses.
I am posting it on the chance that it might be Isotomidae, for which we don't have a BugGuide record in NY.
