Globular Springtail - Dicyrtomina

Globular Springtail - Dicyrtomina
Seattle, King County, Washington, USA
December 9, 2006
Size: 1.5mm
This one was also in the midst of the D. minutas, but there were only 2 of them.
Frans Janssens said that this was possibly Dicyrtomina ornata or saundersi, depending on the markings of the rear (which I didn't get...).

Not ornata
I think you could see the rump patch from this angle if it were.

I agree
I found several similar looking species under the same board on different days. I'll have to take samples and send them off just to nail them down to species.
