Primitive Asellota are largely fresh-water or ground-water inhabitants. It is, however, owing to their attacks upon cultivated plants that the creatures are looked upon as pests by the horticulturalist. Pitfall traps may be useful for sampling in areas from which it would otherwise be difficult to collect e.

This provides protection from predators trying to strike at the more vulnerable underside. There is no doubt but that the habits of woodlice would well repay the attention of naturalists, who are now recognizing that besides anatomy as such, and the classification which a knowledge of structure permits, there is the equally important consideration of the creatures as they live their own life and affect that of others.

Some careful inquiries have nevertheless enabled us to discover several observers who have watched woodlice feeding. Thus, the present-day Gondwanan freshwater distribution of these primitive crustaceans represents a relic, or refugial biogeographic pattern.

The development of the long-tailed forms may also have provided competition that helped force the short-tailed forms into refugia.

Arcturella danmoniensis Sbebbing. He calls the former, however, indiscriminately, "the common armadillo" which is the old name for the pill-woodlice now known as Armadillidium"the pill millipede" and "Glomeris marginata. There is now a need for a new key which incorporates up-to-date information on distribution and descriptions of the seven species discovered in Britain since Limnoria lignorumfor example, bores into wood and additionally feeds on the mycelia of fungi attacking the timber, thus increasing the nitrogen in its diet.

Two other specimens of the species were given me by the describer, Mr. Idotea emarginata, Fabricius. They have a cosmopolitan distribution and over 10, species of isopod, classified into 11 suborders, have been described worldwide.

Casserley, to which allusion has already been made. Cirolana Cranchii, H. Professor Sars considers the Oniscus marinus, Linne, to be what we have known as Icera alhifrons and not an Idotea, and has followed Fabricius in applying the specific name to the former species.

Provided that the moulting woodlouse has survived and in captivity, to ensure this, he must be isolatedafter three days his jaws will be sufficiently hardened to allow of his eating, and usually he first of all devours the second half of his cast skin. All British woodlice are predominantly vegetarian.

The first shell segment is fused to the head; the most posterior segments are often fused, as well, forming a "caudal shield" over the shortened abdomen pleon.

Woodlice have colonised some of the most extreme environments on earth including deserts in Israel and North Africa, and hypersaline pools in Australia via fully terrestrial forms Blinn et al.
