    I've been coming across a lot of new insects lately. The more you look, the more you see!

    There was a very good book by Stephen Jay Gould a few years ago about the Burgess Shale fossil site. This reminds me of one of the creatures illustrated there.

  2. Counter, that's a springtail (Collembola), one of the larger ones in that order :smile:.

    Cheers

    Oh good grief, I was completely wrong! It's not even an insect!
    Thanks again Harry.
