V. giselae comparison - Vitronura giselae

V. giselae comparison - Vitronura giselae
Oklahoma County, Oklahoma, USA
February 22, 2012
Size: ~2mm
I found this V. giselae springtail in my backyard. This one had much less pronounced "bumps" than the others I've found. It also had more mottled color rather than the solid orange I see more often. It almost looked like there was something underneath the skin.

Here's a comparison of two V. giselae that I found. The one on the right has the "typical" look that I find most often. It had deep wrinkles and pronounced "bumps". The one on the left is the less common type. I've only found two that look like this. It was much smoother than the common ones I find and had less noticeable "bumps."
