One of my all time favourite creatures, I find them quite fascinating.......

The Common Rough Woodlouse is very similar to the Common Shiny Woodlouse. The latter is more grey, usually without lighter spots, rough and not shiny and slightly smaller. Both animals live in the same way and may be seen at the same spots, often in mixed groups.

The species shown is not shiny however and has little bumps on the skeleton. For this reason it is called the Common Rough Woodlouse. Usually it is dark gray all over, but sometimes it shows other colours, such as yellow, red, green and blue. When it does, it's often suffering from an endoparasite, usually a virus. Like the other species, the Common Rough Woodlouse eats all kinds of decaying organic materials.

Many thanks for all your votes on yesterdays image of a Leaf Beetle & to Footloose for your UA. Regards Paul.
