    minute wingless arthropods: springtails


  1. order collembola

    Order Collembola, commonly known as springtails, is a group of hexapods that are characterized by their ability to jump. They are among the most abundant of all terrestrial arthropods and are found in a variety of habitats, including soil, leaf litter, logs, dung, cave, snowfields, and shorelines. Collembola are distinguished by a springing organ known as a furcula, located on the underside of their abdomen, which allows them to jump as a means of escape from predators. They are small, often microscopic, and feed on decaying organic material, fungi, and algae. Collembola do not undergo complete metamorphosis and their eggs hatch into a form that is essentially a smaller version of the adult.
