Bristletail Bristletail

Moved from Bristletails.

Do you have a closeup of the face -- ocelli and antenna bases?

Close up added
I hope the additional picture is good enough to place it further.

Nice big one!
I have seen these in years past, but not since I got interested in bug photography.

Odd looking creatures
They look like little land shrimp, and I did see it jump once. It's the first one for me in New England, and it was under a rock in the woods.
