sorry, my friend! i totally forgot about the Microscapha
even better for the guide: our very first live pix, and very good ones, too
recorded in QC but apparently not in ON
Moved from Lederia arctica.

 
i so hope you've collected some...
they must be very scarce in collections

 
Wow, thanks!!
Melandryidae did not once come to mind--this had me completely stumped! I immediately ran back up and was able to obtain a few more. Powerful jumpers they are, just like tiny flea beetles!
