Armadillidium hybrids

Recommended Posts

Now I was thinking that the only Armadillidium I would feel confident keeping together because they seem so different is A. versicolor and A. klugii. There are some odd looking immatures in the enclosure that may prove that theory wrong.

Oh no not another hybridization epidemic, you know how many people are keeping isopod species of the same genera with each other right now? ūüėā I was hoping it was impossible for them to hybridize...¬†

I may be jumping the gun but the spots on some of the partly grown "klugii" look like short stripes (a line instead of a spot). They are only about 4 mm but I don't remember klugii babies looking like that before.

Well keep us posted, will be interesting to see what they turn into!

I put a photo of mate guarding between the two species in the Isopod Zoology book but I thought it was all just in fun at that time.

Yeah I saw that, didn't think much of it though since those two species seemed quite different and I have yet to see anyone else report hybridization...
