thanks, Frans

Bourletiella hortensis
Given
1. the black body
2. the more pale head
3. the distinctly visible small abdomen
4. the long antennae

Confusion with Neosminthurus is possible based on the other picture of the specimen with short antennae. But in this specimen the antennae have been damaged...

Moved to the page visited by the expert; nice pix, Tom!
i would hazard a guess, something akin to Neosminthurus

Moved from ID Request.

looks like Globular Springtails
to me.
