Helleria brevicornis ‘Elba’
€6,00 – €60,00
Common names: Unknown
Origin: Sardinia, Corsica, Elba, Parts of mainland Italy and France. Starter culture for this culture is from Elba.
Optimal temperature: 18-26 °C
Size: up to 2,7 cm
Enclosure: Deep substrate; bottom of substrate wetter, top layer dry, I use a piece of moss in the corner as a siphon for water.
Additional info: Very large pill bug, largest known fully terrestrial isopod that can roll into a ball. It mostly lives underground inside a substrate. Elban variant seems to be a bit lighter in overall color and has a more coarse pattern of their exoskeleton, making it appear ‘sandy’, but it’s still the same as other Helleria brevicornis sp.
