Porcellionides floria

This is a USA native species.  Though named floria for the scientist who first described the species, they have the common name "flowery blue" for the dusty appearance the waxy coating on their shell gives them  This waxy coating helps them resist drying out in more arid settings but they thrive in a variety of environments.

Specialized Care:

This species likes ventilation but breeds best given about a 50% damp substrate and plenty of foods.

Notes:

This species is barely visually distinguishable from the Porcellionides pruinosis "Powdery Blue" though also not as prolific a breeder as the other Porcellionides.
