Armadillidium ....

Amongst many things that are not my strong point and that I lack decent literature or resources for are woodlice. Would appreciate confirmation or otherwise that this is just an odd colour form of A. vulgare (Ketton Quarry, VC55 04/05/2014). TIA.

Yes, it is a colourful A.

Yes, it is a colourful A. vulgare, the edge of the seventh epimera does not have the dark patch which A.pictum or A.pulchellum would have, they are both even more coloured than this one with browns & yellows. see :-


Cheers Keith, I've bookmarked that website for the next odd-looking woodlouse I find.
