The springtails (Collembola) are a group of hexapods that are abundant and diverse in a wide range of habitats across our continent and beyond. Upload your springtail images here and hopefully we'll begin to assemble a nice visual overview of our fascinating springtail fauna. If you've previously uploaded springtail images it'd be great if you could hunt them down and add them to this project too!
