I believe #3 is a schizomid.

5 is an entomobryomorph springtail.
7 is a symphypleonid (globular) springtail.

bugmankeith- Why should anyone reply to those? I think you know what all of those are! Is this a trick question or are you asking for genus/species names because you know what they are 'ordinarily' called?

I need specific names, like if it's a slug, what kind of slug is it. Isopod, what species of isopod, there are many. Thats why Im asking.

So far so good, only a few more need id.

Did 11 have little "claspers" at the end of its body? I think it might be some sort of Lepidopteran. o_O

Yes, it looks like some sort of caterpillar. But in the middle of winter, under a rock, in a web, I have no idea what type, it must eat something dead i'm guessing or fungi.

Would be nice if you left the original photos up for the rest of us getting to the thread late.

Were these collected in Long Island? #4 looks like some kind of Porcellionid but what amazing coloration.

Yes, but I didnt collect them, I photographed them in their natural habitat and left them alone, this was at an undisturbed park in the woods, untouched for many years. Usually that looks likes this, but with more yellow specks. I'll have to go back and get a photo of a normal one.

That last photo reminds me of the Iridovirus thread on here a few months back. Like Scott said, prob. Porcellio genus. Nice shade of mustard.

The isopod looks like Philoscia muscorum, possibly infected with the aforementioned Iridovirus.
