Asellus is an Isopod :-)

Asellus aquaticus is not a Decapod. It is an Isopod (as are woodlice), distinguished by having seven pairs of walking legs.

The where did that come from

The where did that come from bit was in fact a critique aimed at myself. I just cant think how I came to putting it up in the wrong order...???

Always grateful for all the help I receive from fellow naturalists...
