In aquatic macroinvertebrate sampling campaigns carried out between 2004 and 2008 in the malladas (inter-dune depressions that receive rainwater or are fed from a local aquifer) of the Devesa and Race de l'Olla of the Albufera Natural Park of Valencia (Spain), 18 taxa of Collembola were collected and distributed among seven families of Poduromorpha, Entomobryomorpha and Symphypleona. Entomobrya benaventi sp. nov., is present in the vegetation associated with different samples "malladas" (Ra01b, Ra04, Sa04, Sa03/04, etc.) and showed sexual dimorphism different from other species of the genus. The sampling also included the first citation for the Iberian Peninsula of Jordanathrix articulata articulata (Ellis, 1974). Springtails are part of the fauna studied in the malladas and provide increased knowledge of the existing biological diversity in a restored and protected environment.
