An unreliable memoir

Bristletail

Bristletail
I guess bristletails are not everyone’s cup of tea, but I’ve been fascinated by these tiny insects for ages. They are part of the clean-up crew, feeding on plant matter and dead insects and seem to be seasonal in my garden, appearing under logs and stones at certain times of the year then disappearing again for some months.
