Springtails *Adult Content, May contain Mating Rituals*

Found another globose looking springtail in another container. Guess this species is from Willy as the ones I typically see are grey and have longer bodies.

Edit: Species identified as Sminthurinus trinotatus

Regarding the comments about springtail disposition. It depends on if you view them as a pest or beneficial, though I believe there are certain species which may feed primarily on live plant material. See Sminthurus viridis.

Ohhh that's good to know, Chen. It looks like they're the only ones that eat live plant matter! That's pretty neat.
