These critters have taken up residence in standing water in a small terrarium. It is home to several frogs and lizards. If they will coexist peacefully, I have no objection. If they will harm plants or critters I'll have to evict them.enter image description here

Those are collembolans. The common name is "springtail". Several groups of collembola are semi-aquatic. They are not larvae, but adults. There is a nice paper on aquatic collembolans here: https://link.springer.com/chapter/10.1007/978-1-4020-8259-7_36
