WOW! There must be at least three species here! :O

 
Indeed
And they represent 3 different families:
Isotomidae: the large elongate one
Bourletiellidae: the globular greenish
Katiannidae: the globular blueblack

Thanks
Frans. I'd like to place this photo on the page for the green or black springtail.

 
Sorry for this late reaction...
