Pseudosinella
Hi Jim, could you create a new page for this genus, even if my ID is tentative. It will allow us to put some more structure in the unidentified ones...

 
Done

Entomobryidae, note long 4th abdominal segment
Hi Jim, sure it is clearly a Collembola. Could be a Pseudosinella. Many Pseudosinella are lacking eyes.

 
Thank you, Frans.
That's good to know. I'll move images.
