This account is the result of efforts by Drs. Kenneth Christiansen and Peter Bellinger to amass and examine the major collections of North American Collembola. Their work will culminate in a descriptive monograph on the Collembola-fauna of North America. The author agreed to describe part of the new species of Sminthuridae extracted from those collections. The analysis of specimens justifies erection of 17 species new to science.
