Australian Springtails

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!

    Yes. I often think these are springtails until I look closely at them down the lens. A little less 'plush-toy' than Collembola.

    Thanks Nick - "springtail" is easier to say though :)
