Here's something you don't see every day (unless you're looking for them). An undescribed species of springtail that seems to have invaded the UK. There appears to be a few different species, all unknown elsewhere, but presumed to have come originally from Australia. This one seems to get to a maximum of 0.8 mm long, but I'm finding them by beating foliage and low vegetation all over the area.
