Microvelia reticulata, female eating springtale 29-06-2005
Microvelia reticulata ♀, Entomobrya fasciata
Microvelia (female) with springtail

I only just had enough time to make a picture of this springtail, a minute later it was the victim of this hungry Microvelia.
The springtail's name, Entomobrya multifasciata, thanks to Frans Janssens of (a large site on springtails). It may very well have have happened that this springtail landed on the water by accident. Below the picture of the still living springtail.
