Check out the photo bomber, upside down on its back. I think it&#039;s a mite. If the springtail is somewhere around 1-1.5mm, it must be in the 0.1mm domain. Dicyrtomina saundersi,Extreme Macro Click/tap to enlarge Promoted

Dicyrtomina saundersi is one of the small "globular" Springtails (Collembola) from the family Dicyrtomidae. Within its distribution range it is easily found in leaf litter from late fall to early spring. It can be confused with other species of Dicyrtomina, most notably with D. ornata.
