Isopod collecting

Went out and did some collecting today, did really well! I think the small ones are  Philoscia muscorum and the large ones Oniscus asellus but I'm no expert. What do you think?

Nice isopods! :) You got mostly Oniscus asellus and Philoscia muscorum, and I also see one Trachelipus rathkii.

Good eye! I don't even see that one in the photo but when sorting them I noticed it.

After working with those species for a while, you begin to get really good at telling them apart, even from photos. :) Hope they all do well for you!

Went out again today, got a couple  Armadillidium vulgare, not sure what the ones with the yellow are.

Those would be Philoscia muscorum. :)
