Gender/Age Information
Hello Domingo!
Dr. Janssens often provides you with helpful information regarding the "male/female" and "adult/immature" status of your springtails. Where I have noticed it on your posts (as with this one), I have been editing them so that the appropriate boxes on the submission form are checked off. This data is very useful when doing an Advanced Search on this site because these criteria can be used to filter the data and limit the type of results you receive. If you could take care of updating your own posts with any info that Dr. Janssens offers that would be fantastic. Thanks!

Isotomurus bimus
Indeed a juvenile specimen. You have a thriving population in your back yard!
