“Snowfleas” may be visible in January at FPR during a thaw.

“Snowfleas” are a kind of “springtail,” which are not insects but a kind of arthropod (hexapod) no longer classed as insects.

Springtails are cryptozoa frequently found in leaf litter and other decaying material,[12] where they are primarily detritivores and microbivores, and one of the main biological agents responsible for the control and the dissemination of soil microorganisms.[13]
