After returning to the strangler fig tree where the first specimen was collected, I found many more collembolans inside folded leaves. Among the living individuals, and molted exoskeletons, were what appeared to be eggs. Many of the eggs had hatched. I am attaching a photograph of two living individuals and eggs.
