  1. Hello everyone, I'm part of the fossil forum and I saw a fossil that I thought looked like an isopod that needed an identification. After some research, this site turned up and I decided to ask y'all if you could confirm or deny my suspicions. It is from the Mississippian period, slightly before isopod are supposed to have evolved ( although a few say even before that) and it is land deposits, meaning it should be a terrestrial one. I don't know much about isopods so I was hoping you guys had some anatomical expertise In analyzing it. I've sent something like this to two other isopod experts but they haven't gotten back to me. Thank you and good luck! Ask if you need anything else. link to see the pictures and the rest of the thread: http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/74597-help-with-arthropod-id/&
  2. Went out collecting today and caught some roaches! Was not easy, about one in every 10 rocks I flipped had one under it and they are so tiny and quick to get away. I got 4 large, 5 small, and two ootheca. They don't seem to be able to climb plastic. I'm guessing there some sort of Parcoblatta or Blatta orientalis. Any info you could provide will help. My questions are, do you know what species they are? Are the larger ones nymphs or adults? Do the ootheca look viable and how do I get them to hatch? Thanks
  3. I collected about a dozen of these guys in my woods of westchester NY. They are all the same size, and fast. My guess would be Philoscia muscorum, the common striped woodlouse, just from looking at a few pictures.
