This species is a beautiful European native.  Their silvery grey shell varies slightly from very pale to a medium grey.  In some light they have a slight nearly purple tint.  They have a flat profile and tend to cling similarly to Oniscus asellus in their behavior.

Specialized Care:

This species needs good ventilation and a 70/30 dry to wet ratio.  They also require a constant source of protein to avoid cannibalistic behavior.

Notes:

These are an amazingly gorgeous species to see.
