Garden Springtail - Bourletiella hortensis - male

Garden Springtail - Bourletiella hortensis - Male
Baiting Hollow, Suffolk County, New York, USA
May 8, 2009
This one was on the next mushroom over from the other springtail that I just posted.
This springtail was taken at the same 1:1 resolution which shows it's relative size to the other one.


Bourletiella hortensis
Given the two pale dots at the anal segment, it probably is a male specimen.
