Pill Millipede (Glomeris marginata)

pill woodlouse or pill millipede

you may have seen my earlier post showing the uncurling sequence of a woodlouse. I managed to find it’s millipede cousin.

the pill millipede (Glomeris marginata) is often confused with the pill woodlouse (Armadillium vulgare), they can be distinguished by a shiny casing and having more legs than the woodlouse. I love how the individual plates of armour fit together; it’s so perfectly designed.
