For Tomolonus, you might want to check our Checklist of the Collembola

Tomolonus is a Tomoceridae genus. In the Tomoceridae checklist,
clicking on the keyword 'genus' will pop up the global
distribution map for that Genus. Also, check the Tomoceridae key and its
rationale for a bit more detail on morphology and taxonomy.
