Folsomia palaearctica Potapov & Babenko, 2000 

Discussion. Some populations are darker, almost like F. quadrioculata  . A few specimens were found which share two characters with F. manolachei  : the second posterior ocellus is rudimental and posterior side of the manubrium has one ap-chaeta.

Distribution and ecology. A transholarctic species ( Babenko & Fjellberg 2006). A common and eurytopic species. Inhabits all types of forests and alpine sites, often in dry conditions, but very rare in steppes ( Fig. 1View FIGURE 1: loc. 1– 3, 5 – 12, 15).
