To all people with copies of the revised (1998) edition of Collembola of North America. We have been making corrections to this work as we have reprinted new copies. Below is a listing of the corrections we have made. The corrections and the dates in which they were made are given below. If you ordered your copy before the date of the correction then these corrections should be made in your copy. The later you received your copy the fewer of these corrections you will find applicable. Where whole pages or sections have been replaced if you wish copies of the replacement please contact Stephanie Peterson at : and let her know the replacement pages you wish a copy of and your mailing address.

We have altered the method of making changes in this work available. We have recently made a number of significant changes and they are available on the WEB. When you open this you will find at the lower left a box labelled: Other Collembola resources. In this click on CONANRG additions and changes and you will get a list of these . Click on these individually and you will get the various additions and changes which can the be printed out ad added to substituted for the appropriate pages in CONANRG.

We have revised the classification of Tullbergiinae in this version of the Manual (see p.526); to avoid confusion in references to earlier work we have treated the newly introduced names as subgenera. In the table above the number before the species represents the number of the subgenus, as noted below: 1) Chaetophorura, 2) Granuliphorura, 3) Mesaphorura, 4) Metaphorura, 5) Multivesicula, 6) Neonaphorura, 7) Paratullbergia, 8) Pongeiella.

However systematic work on the subfamily, especially by Rusek, has resulted in the erection of additional genera (here treated as subgenera) whose names are now in common use in the literature, and the subgenus Tullbergia has been restricted to extralimital species. We have assigned our species to the following subgenera, as noted in the key and text:
Chaetophorura Rusek, 1976. Type species: C. vancouverica Rusek, 1976.
Granuliphorura Rusek, 1976. Type species: G. obtusochaeta Rusek, 1976.
Mesaphorura B=F6rner, 1901. Type species: M. krausbaueri B=F6rner, 1901.
Multivesicula Rusek, 1982. Type species: M. columbica Rusek, 1982.
Pongeiella Rusek, 1991. Type species: Tullbergia (Tullbergia) falca Christiansen & Bellinger, 1980.
