|Isopods (Isopoda) belong to the class of Malacostraca. Their original habitat is the sea. There are approximately 10, 000 species globally, which are divided into approximately 120 families, some examples of which are the Common rough woodlouse (Porcellio s...|
|Isopods can reach lengths of 3 to 12 mm. The body is flattened. They have a constant number of body limbs and 7 legs. At the rear legs are gills. Isopods also live in fresh water. Although woodlice no longer live in water they still have gills. Under the body of the female isopod, there is a breast pocket, where the young (up to 100 per year) develop into adults in the pouch. |
|Isopods (Isopoda) prefer moist habitats, but are also found in dry areas. Isopods feed on live or dead plant material. |

The females breed up to 3 times a year. Depending on the size of the female, from 20 to 160 young isopods hatch.
|The common woodlouse (Oniscus Asellus), belongs to the order isopods (Isopoda), the family Oniscidae and the genus Oniscus. This species is commonly found in Europe, America, Africa and Asia.

The larvae reach body lengths of 4-5 mm. Their yellow to brown bodies are shaped like isopods and have appendages of different sizes according to what species they are. The larvae of flat-footed flies pupate at the end of the last larval stage, in or on the soil. The second generation overwinters in the larval stage. |
