Springtail..? - Orchesella cincta

Springtail..? - Orchesella cincta
Highbridge Park, Manhattan - NYC, New York, USA
June 16, 2010
Size: ~3mm
These were numerous (but tiny) on the rock-face where I was shooting in the understory of the woods at Highbridge Park.


Orchesella cincta
Quite right, Ken!

Moved from ID Request.

Springtail for sure.
Something in the Entomobryomorpha. Looks a bit like Orchesella cincta:

Might be something in that general vicinity, at least. Wait for an expert opinion.
