Poor image of Springtail - Pogonognathellus
Atco, Camden County, New Jersey, USA
February 17, 2012
Size: 5mm?
Sorry for poor quality... Found on fallen leaf in grassy area.
Pogonognathellus dubius?

Moved

Pogonognathellus cf. flavescens
or 'P. pale species group'.
Pogonognathellus in the USA is currently under revision. All Pogonognathellus specimens previously identified as 'flavescens', which is a typical European species, should now be IDed as 'cf. flavescens' or even better as 'pale species group'.

In P. dubius the body is dark and the antennae are as long as the body. In the pale species group the body is pale and the antennae are shorter then the body (as in your picture).
