Actually good examples of what are commonly known as springtails. At one time 
classified as insects, but are now in another category of hexapods. The 
Collembola is now considered a subclass and the different subcategories of 
these springtails are the orders. This one is an entomobryid collembolan. The 
furcula is the structure of the spring apparatus situated at the rear of the 
body and it folds forward and clasps on the ventral side of the body.  A quick 
release propels the creature from the substrate surface.

Hello,

This morning the following four pests were caught in an Archives processing 
area, on someone's desk. They suspect that they came out of a box of documents 
that were being processed, but are not certain. There are also boxes nearby 
from recent supply shipments.

The pests were caught with pieces of scotch tape and, as a result, are slightly 
mangled. They range in size from 2mm - 3mm.

I know they're pretty smashed, but I was hoping some components that are 
visible might provide clues to what they are?

Thanks in advance!

Best,

Crista Pack
