Herein, eyeless Pseudosinella species from Brazilian caves are reviewed, including the description of 23 new species, new records plus additional notes on the descriptions of P. ambigua Zeppelini, Brito, and Lima and of P. guanhaensis Zeppelini, Brito, and Lima. We also provide an identification key to 27 eyeless species recorded from Brazil. To organize the 26 Brazilian eyeless taxa analyzed in this work, we organize them in apparently artificial groups: 11 species have one larger tooth on the… 
Morphological and molecular analysis of Willowsia nigromaculata (Collembola, Entomobryidae, Entomobryinae) reveals a new cryptic species from the United States
Morphological and genetic evidence reveals that populations in the United States and France represent two distinct nigromaculata-like species, but a phylogenetic analysis indicates both species may also be present in Canada.

Three new species of Entomobryoidea from Brazilian Caatinga-Cerrado transitional zone are described and illustrated and Identification keys for Brazilian species of Cyphoderus, Pseudosinella and Trogolaphysa are provided.
New species of Lepidocyrtus Bourlet and Entomobrya Rondani (Collembola: Entomobryoidea: Entomobryidae) from Brazil.
Two new species of the Brazilian entomobryids are described and detailed dorsal chaetotaxy of them are provided, in hope to guide future identifications and descriptions within the genera in Brazil and Neotropical Region.
New subgenus and four species of Lepidocyrtus Bourlet (Collembola, Entomobryidae, Lepidocyrtinae) from Amazon
Here a new subgenus of Lepidocyrtus Bourlet from South America is proposed, which differs from other subgenera by tergal polychaetosis, dental tubercle truncate and dentes with numerous spine-like chaetae.
New data clarifying the taxonomy of European members of the Lepidocyrtus pallidus-serbicus group (Collembola, Entomobryidae).
Systematic mesofauna survey of a swamp woodland gave the opportunity to describe the new species, L. florae sp.
A new cave species of Coecobrya Yosii (Collembola, Entomobryidae, Entomobryinae) from South Africa, with an identification key to the genus.
In this study, a new species of springtail from Cango Caves, South Africa is described and illustrated, and an updated key to the species of the genus Coecobrya is provided, adding 14 species to the most recently published identification key.
New records and new species of springtails (Collembola: Entomobryidae, Paronellidae) from lava tubes of the Galápagos Islands (Ecuador)
The findings of the first survey of Collembola from Galápagos lava tube caves are presented, providing a significant update to the total number of entomobryoid Colleembola species reported from the GaláPagos Islands.
The survey of Seira Lubbock, 1870 (Collembola, Entomobryidae, Seirinae) from Iberian Peninsula and Canary Islands, including three new species.
A survey of Seira fauna from Iberian Peninsula and Canary Islands is presented, including the description of three new species from Spain, and an identification key to 31 species with known dorsal chaetotaxy from Western Palearctic region is provided.
A new species of Seira (Collembola: Entomobryidae: Seirini) from Northern Brazil, with the addition of new chaetotaxic characters
This is the first species of Seira described from the Cerrado domain, as well as the first record of the genus from the state of Tocantins, Brazil, and characteristics of maxillary and labial papillae, chaetotaxy of subcoxae, collophore and ventral region of head, ventral and lateral region of abdomen IV and V are provided.
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.
A new genus of Entomobryinae (Collembola, Entomobryidae) from Brazilian Amazon with body scales and dental spines.
A new monotypic genus of Entomobryinae from Brazilian Amazon, Amazhomidia gen. nov. is similar to other genera of the subfamily, especially to Sinhomidia Zhang, in presence of apically pointed scales on body dorsally and spines on dens.
