Globular springtail, light microscopy footage. This specimen is Sminthurides aquaticus, a very small globular springtail. It displays sexual dimorphism, with the males being half the size of the females. Springtails are small flightless arthropods, classified as hexapods. Springtails are so-named because they can jump large distances using their tail.
