I was using the iSpot Woodlouse key, but failed on this and anoter. I was working from my images, a lot unfortunately did not lend themselves to it's use. Come less inclement weather I will be out in the field collecting a few specimens, dead keen to have a closer look at woodlouse lungs.
All interesting stuff, anyway I must thank you for the ID. Had my memory been in working order it would of reminded me that I did indeed record this and one or two more from an ants nest.
Thanks again, season greetings, and have a great 2013

Mick, thanks for your note. I didn't realise there was an ispot key, I've got the FSC guide myself, it includes some good colour plates as well as a detailed key. Yes, some of those images would need to be sharper, to discern bumps etc, and some side shots as well to see the shell in profile would help in some instances.
I don't know how you find all this stuff. I was tempted to put in a request - any chance of a purple pygmy woodlouse, infected with an iridovirus, for example?
best wishes, Jeremy

Don't often use messenger idioms, but literally did laugh out loud. There is not day that I go out and not see an invertebrate that I have never seen before, can be in excess of 10+, Diptera in the main. Now what was your request, O yes,a purple pygmy woodlouse, infected with an iridovirus, I'll keep an eye for one.
yes, another day, another new species seems a remarkably sustainable formula. Two new flies already this morning.
