Caption: Anurida maritima is a Springtail or Collembolan which is found in aggregations on the surface of rock pools. Aggregation is an important aspect of collembolan biology, and A. maritima has been shown to produce an aggregating pheromone. Like many intertidal animals, A. maritima moves in rhythm with the tidal cycle, and has an endogenous circatidal rhythm with a period of 12.4 hours.
