WHITE PORCELLIO

Recommended Posts

So I'm still working on isolating this pure white morph. It's been a long road, and seems to be a rare color form, but I refuse to give up. I can't wait to have a thriving colony. They are completely lacking pigment, even down to their eyes (white).... like giant Trichorhina tomentosa.

So you are saying this is not a "white dwarf" that is normally available?

Hey Matt. Yup, these are the same size as the Orange Porcellio, just pure white (with the gut line visible). They grow to about 1/2" or so. Happened to stumble across just one in the wild, and isolating has been a rough road... still a work in progress.

Very cool. Can't wait until they are readily available!

I found a similar creature (Porcellio sp.) in eastern Iowa several months ago. It is still in my possession, dead. It is a sort of coffee-creamer color with very dark reddish eyes. The heart is visible. Is it an albino, or just the same thing Planet Porcellio has?

Here's a purple sowbug. This is a very unique individual. The reason it's purple rather than blue is it's an orange form infected by the iridovirus ( the orange form is usually immune to it).
