minute translucent springtails, are most Ceratophysella?
Nashua, Hillsborough County, New Hampshire, USA
Size: 0.3 - 0.8 mm
Found inside a small rearing container with a few moist wood scraps and a wo*olybear coc*coon. Photographed December 8, 2006. I'm guessing some or all of these are juveniles and it looks, based on relative antenna length, like there could be more than one species.

Hypogastruridae + Isotomidae
Indeed Jim it are 2 species. Those with relative shortest antenna are of family Hypogastruridae. The others are of family Isotomidae.
Impossible to do any more detailed ID...

 
Thank you, Frans.
I guess I'll crop around the isotomids and post them in their own family.
