- There are currently several different species of "Green Spots" all misidentified and missold in the UK under the single name of Troglodillo rotundatus "Green Spot". This culture here is the original culture popularised in the US. Key, tell-tale signs that can be used to identify this original culture are: 1. orange coloured antennae, and 2. a multitude of neon-green speckles that cover the entirety of its body (other "Green Spots" missold as T. rotundatus in the UK only has green splotches and are missing these numerous speckles). It is imperative to be able to discern these different species apart to prevent the mixing of cultures and accidental hybridisation in the hobby.

First bred in the UK by me in 2023 originally from a group of 5, I can finally offer surplus offspring in small quantities. As these are slow breeders, surplus stock from my captive breeding programme will be available infrequently.

The listing is for 1x animal, of a highly sought-after species of isopod (woodlouse/roly poly/pillbug) that is famous for its neon-green speckling that adorns their whole body.

These are CAPTIVE BRED in my collection, with this stock originating from Vietnam, Asia. When a group is purchased, the isopods sent will be an assorted mixture of ages and sizes, to ensure a good start to a breeding colony.

The isopods feed on a variety of forest materials such as decaying wood and leaf litter. Additional supplements such as calcium (limestone/cuttlefish bone) and fish food should be offered as part of their balanced diet.
