Hi Stephen. Finally, I managed to ID this specimen...
I would like to use your picture at collembola.org.
Do I have your permission?

 
Thanks
Frans, Thanks for the ID. I would be happy for you to post the image on your fine website.

 
Thanx for permission
This species is one of the larger Tomoceridae of the USA. You may consider it the longest if you take into account its very long antennae. Your picture clearly matches the definition of the colouration in the posterior segments, where you can see a distinct pigment pattern, characteristic to P. elongatus. Great shot!
