Trichoniscus - Miktoniscus

Moved from Trichoniscus.

Also Miktoniscus probably
Hi Graham,

Me again, sorry ;o)

Please refer to the comment with this image. This is a much better image and also the habitus is much more like our Miktoniscus. With this one even more certain it'll be a Miktoniscus sp..

It seems you find these regularly?

Thanks! Yeah, these are really common in my backyard and I would be happy to send you some specimens. I can go out tomorrow and get some if you want. ;) Where should I send them?

Happy :o)))
Hi Graham, that would really be fanfriggin'fabulous :o)) I'm really very, very interested in having an indepth look at these to further nail down the research on our own, as yet unidentified specimen. Of course, in due time, after we are sure ourselves, you'll also get a confirmed ID to species, which is neat too I think, as this is a really excellent image of the species (whichever), and will most probably be the first confirmed photo on the internet. One more step in documenting the woodlice of the world photographically :o)

I'll send you an e-mail next.

Cheers! Arp
