Abstract Three new species of Isotomidae springtails are described from the Lake Champlain Basin (Vermont and New York, USA), Lake Willoughby and Greater Averril Pond in Vermont. Subisotoma joycei sp. n. and Scutisotoma champi sp. n. were collected in sandy beaches whereas Ballistura rossi sp. n. was found only in a constructed wetland built and managed by the University of Vermont. Scutisotoma champi sp. n. was found in Lakes Champlain and Willoughby, and Greater Averril Pond and is probably… Expand
Collembola of Rapa Nui (Easter Island) with descriptions of five endemic cave-restricted species.
Eight species of Collembola are reported from recent collections made in caves on the Polynesian island of Rapa Nui and five of these species are new to science and apparently endemic to the island, as well as the other presumed cave-restricted arthropods. Expand
Bellisotoma, a new genus of Isotomidae from North America (Hexapoda, Collembola)
A new genus of Isotomidae, Bellisotoma gen. n, shows a furcula adapted to a neustonic mode of life, and may be a Isotopenola-like derivative adapted to neUSTonic habitats. Expand

Taxonomy of the Proisotoma complex. Redefinition of genera and description of new species of Scutisotoma and Weberacantha (Collembola, Isotomidae)
The paper provides new information on morphological characters which are useful in generic diagnostics of the Proisotoma complex of Isotomidae, and a number of known species are excluded from the redefined Pro isotoma s. Expand
Two new species and descriptive notes for five Pseudosinella species (Hexapoda: Collembola: Entomobryidae) from West Virginian (USA) Caves
Detailed analysis of the dorsal chaetotaxy of the head shows that Gisin’s RST system of nomenclature confounds the identity of some macrosetae, hence, a new nomenClature system, denominated AMS, is proposed to more consistently identify macro setae across all Lepidocyrtini. Expand
