Description:

Not a great photo,but is it possible to name these guys found under the bark of Cordeline trees that were being removed after severe frost 2010 /2011 killed them off.
The beetles were 3-4 mm long and very numerous,some had lateral pale stripes as the lower one shows.

Thanks for that..Moo

I did originally think springtail ,but thought they would not be as "polished" looking (compare top one to bottom one )
