This AIDGAP identification guide covers all adult Collembola (springtails) to species level.

With around 250 species, Collembola are one of the most diverse groups in Britain and Ireland but relatively little is known about the geographical ranges of all but the most common species. Although they are regarded as a difficult group, and can appear daunting to study, with a little practice one soon becomes familiar with the characteristics of the larger and more common species and can use the springtail identification keys with ease.

AIDGAP produces simple and clearly written identification keys, aimed at non-specialist users from age 16+. The FSC is one of the UK's leading publishers of identification guides, ranging from easy to use fold-out charts through intermediate level AIDGAP guides, to specialist books such as the Synopses of the British Fauna and RES Handbooks.
