Thanks

This one looked much paler, so I thought it might be different, having looked at the NH museum key:
http://www.nhm.ac.uk/nature-online/life/other-invertebrates/walking-with...

- but I know from plant and insect identification that beginners can go very wrong! Still, everyone starts somewhere.

Interesting to find today (doing garden bioblitz) that we have at least 3 species of woodlouse in our garden so far though, as we've definitely also got Oniscus asellus and Porcellio scaber.

Many thanks.

You'll find more woodlice!

A. vulgare is very variable in appearance. You will find a lot more woodlice species when you get your eye-in. About ten species in an old garden is usual, but many are elusive!
