Snailbug 2

a small brown bug - lives with snails under flat rocks.
Seems to have long antennae and thin spines on the body.
Thanks Grant (Collembola) - I DID agree.
But now MickET has come in....

I am close stuying the snail Clausilia bidentata - they are largely hibernating.
I take close-ups but only when I'm home do I find things missed by eye. I have made a lot of discoveries this way.
This little bug has not been seen since these few pictures but that is hardly surprising!
I can add nothing to its description - what you see is all I have.
I may have a slightly better detailed pic.
I'm on the case
