Caption: Springtail. Coloured Scanning Electron Micrograph (SEM) of the hairs on the body of an unidentified species of springtail (order Collembola). Springtails are the most primitive insects, dating back 300 million years in the fossil record. They are wingless and lack external reproductive appendages. They possess primitive eyes known as ocelli and primitive antennae consisting of four articulated segments. The higher insects have multi-segmented flagellate antennae. The common name is derived from the habit of some species of using their tails to spring into the air. Magnification: x4000 at 6x6cm size.
