Armadillidium vulgareCommon name: Pill bug
Distribution: Reported from the southern parts of Australia.
Remarks: This slater grows to approximately 18 millimetres long.
It is native to Europe but has been introduced to much of the world through the movement of plant material. Slaters mainly feed on decaying plant matter and need a humid environment to survive.
We have photographed this species in November.
