The Narco Cove Woodlouse (Porcellio sp. ‘Narco Cove’) is a new addition to the isopod keeping hobby. ‘Narco Cove’ refers to the area they were first collected from, a location in Spain. These woodlice are a similar looking species to the Titan Isopod (P. hoffmannseggi), though much smaller. They have a slate grey coloured back with a white border all the way around their body; appearing like a white skirt.

This species has not been in captivity long, and so not much is known about it, though it appears to be quite hardy and similar in care to other more commonly kept species like Porcellio laevis. A fast and active species that appears to be tolerant of broad ranging temperatures and humidity; making it an isopod suitable for beginners.

Sold in a tub of 10.
