Collembola of Vermont

Latest version published by Vermont Center for Ecostudies on 22 December 2021 Vermont Center for Ecostudies
These data are primarily from a paper published by P. Bellinger, (1982) which provided a georeferenced list of the species of Collembola (springtails) found in Vermont. The majority of the specimens examined during the creation of this list were collected by Dr. Ross Bell and his students and are held at the University of Vermont collection. A second paper by Soto-Adames FN & Giordano R (2011), documents several new species of springtail found in Vermont and named after Ross and his wife Joyce Bell for their contributions to springtail research. Combined, these resources provide a georeferenced list of the species of springtail that are documented in the State of Vermont, US.
