Woodlouse - Philoscia muscorum

Woodlouse - Philoscia muscorum
Baiting Hollow, Suffolk County, New York, USA
June 23, 2008

Location
Was it in the flower, or was it placed for the photo?

 
Location
There were several about 2.5 feet above the ground on this plant.
They were moving around rather then stationary.
I was surprised to see them up in a plant,
which appears to be a non cultivar small rose.

Woodlouse...
This is the woodlouse, Philoscia muscorum.
