New springtail species discoveries in the Netherlands


This 2010 video is about springtails, taken from the BBC’s Life in the Undergrowth documentary series.

Translated from the Dutch entomologists of EIS Kenniscentrum Insecten:

Monday, August 24th, 2015

During an inventory of the Drents-Friese Wold no fewer than five species of springtails, new for our country, were found. Also 19 species that had not been previously reported for Friesland province and 15 species that had not been reported for the province of Drenthe. With this finding, the number of species of springtails occurring in the Netherlands is 249! Members of the Dutch Entomological Society, where insects lovers meet each other, identified last summer 1329 species of insects and other invertebrates in different areas of the Drents-Friese Wold. Recently an article was published about the insects of the Drents-Friese Wold near Appelscha in Entomologische Berichten.

The five species, new for the Netherlands, are: Ceratophysella scotica, Isotomurus unifasciatus, Pachyotoma crassicauda, Isotoma caerulea and Proisotoma subminuta.
