I've had many of these critters come out of my Berlese funnels. As far as I can tell it doesn't have a furcula, but has two small brown tooth like curved structures at the end of the abdomen.

It came from an agricultural soil

Even an ID to order would be very helpful.



Indeed. No furca, no pigment, no eyes. And small!
Well done!

Moved for expert attention
Moved from ID Request.

I assume it's a Collembolan--but I can't say I'm certain. Frans will know.

Welcome to BugGuide!

Possible ID
After chatting with a few people I think it may belong to Tullbergiidae
