    Hello and welcome to the family.
    For the species, you most likely have Pelinobius muticus, Cyriopagopus lividus and Ceratogyrus marshalli

    I saw you asking about the scientific name vs common name list in another part of the forum, but like you already realized it's better to get stick to the scientific names. Trust me, you'll get them fast and soon after that it feels just weird to use the common names :D Of course, if you're sometimes unsure about the scientific names, you can always post a photo of the T here and I'm sure someone can identify it.
