Found some of these guys in the LFS of my nepenthes pots. They look and act like springtails to me, but I am just guessing. They jump an inch or so when touched like springtails and are only in the moist LFS and not on the plants.

Toothpick for size reference.

That has to be one of the coolest-looking springtails I've seen! :hail:

Anyone from the US going to offer a colony of these in the NASC? :scratch:

Be careful about these round springtails, they can cause serious plant damage. I always use chemicals and destroy them all whenever I see them; they almost destroyed my sarracenia collection and left behind many deformed leaves. The ones I had didn't have the two spots though, so maybe yours is harmless.

Great job, Kulamauiman!
