Help with Seashore invertebrate please

A 'springing' crawling creature, no idea what it is so didn't know where to start looking for identification. My first post so not sure exactly how this works - if I'm missing anything please tell me!!!

Thanks

Bristletail

It's a Sea Bristletail. The common species is Petrobius maritimus, I think. I have added that ID on the sighting. I saw lots today, as well.

I've updated my observation now, so thanks very much ophrys.
I hope I've done this all properly, still getting to grips with it!

Feel free to look at my ongoing (hopefully improving) collection of pictures on Flickr:
