Armadillidium werneri is the same as Armadillidium sp Montenegro?


Recommended Posts

On a few websites I found people treating these as the same species. They called them A. werneri "Montenegro" or Armadillidium cf. werneri "Montenegro". So probably Armadillidium sp "Montenegro" is A. werneri or a species that is very similar? Does anyone have any good information about this?

The "Montenegro" appellation is just the location that the stock was originally taken from. The fact that werneri is used may mean this is a local variant of A. werneri, while the stock known simply as A "Montenegro" haven't been identified to species level yet. This often means that they are undescribed species or species never found in that locality before. This happens a lot with inverts. 

Mall the best from Bill.
