Sowbugs are dark grey in color and ¼ to 5/8 inch long. These humpbacked, oval crustaceans appear to be covered with segmented armour. Pillbugs can be distinguished from sowbugs because pillbugs are able to roll up into a ball when alarmed.

Crustacea/Isopoda

Scientific Name

Armadillidum vulgare Porcellio laevis Koch
