My name is Robert Ratford. I teach at the Sydney Russell School in Dagenham. I have been teaching since 1986 and prior to teaching I was involved with MAFF(Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food), a shop manager, Landscape Gardener, I am working within the Region 18* ASE Association for Science Education. I am about to start a section in our news letter on web sites that may be of interest to science teachers. Would you mind if I listed the details of the Springtail group in it? I am a member of the PMS and my hobbies include photography and Microscopy.* The North-east London and Essex branch, for which I am membership secretary. If anyone would like to join please contact me.

Dear Mike,

I just discovered your site and I am quite impressed.

Allow me to point out that the right part of the Symplypleona picture in the identification key does not represent a Symphypleona but a Neelipleona. Easily recognised by the typical long club-like ventral tubus.

Best regards,

[Note that this error has now been corrected.]

Further correspondence has been carried out with Frans, on various topics, some of which may, eventually provide material for this site.
