Deep down in cool places

Post by MWP admin » Mon Oct 24, 2011 11:00 am

Hi, I spotted this isopod (woodlouse) in caves at Ghajn Tuffieha area and managed to take some photos of it.

No idea if it's common or not, though, if not mistaken, there is an endemic species of woodlouse.

Photos taken October 2011

In one of the photos, there is also a silverfish (i think) and note the biodiversity of mosses!
