Rove beetles.
The most conspicuous elements here (sorry springtail enthusiasts) are the paederine rove beetles. Colorful!

Hi Steve,
I spot springtails that are members of at least 3 different families: Isotomidae, Entomobryidae and Tomoceridae.
I leave it as an excercise to the reader to associate the specimens to the families... ;-)
Jim, Tom would you care taking the bait? ;-)
