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!

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

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