In Case You Didn't Know ...
Members of this arthropod class are 6-legged (hexapods) yet not considered insects. They stand out from insects by adding body segments during molts.
These are very small (< 2 mm long), soil-dwelling animals. They have no eyes, wings, or antennae, and lack pigmentation. World-wide, only about 800 species have been identified.
