Unknown springtail--Poduramorph?

Unknown springtail--Poduramorph?
Roseville, Placer County, California, USA
March 13, 2010
Size: maybe 0.7mm
Brushed out of moss. It doesn't seem to match exactly with anything I've gathered before. I'm especially intrigued by the antennae, which appear slightly clubbed.

Poduromorpha
is the best match for now.
The picture is a bit to dark to check for family characteristics.
IMHO it is not Ceratophysella, for the specimen is too short.
The body shape is more like that of Podura aquatica: short, rounded terminally.
