Woodlice (Isopoda)
Woodlice are crustaceans and have a broad, oval to long shape. Their size varies from animals of 3 mm to animals of up to 20 mm large pillbugs (Armadillidium sp.), scabby slaters (Porcellio scaber Latr.) and dooryard sowbugs (Oniscus asellus L.). Most woodlice are plain grey, pillbugs can also be black to brown-black, all of them have seven pairs of legs. They love dark, humid and warm places. During the day they hide in pots, under moss, in substrates or similar safe places. Their preferred food is dead plant material, occasionally and in cases of high population density they also feed on young, fresh plant material.
