Porcellio scaber - Leucistic Finally found a terrestrial Isopod with leucism to shoot some better images with my current setup. On the internet you will find various other images of leucistic Woodlice, so supposedly it's not even that rare, but when you want to find one it just doesn't seem to happen :o)  Geotagged,Leucism,Netherlands,Oniscidea,Porcellio,Porcellio scaber,Porcellionidae,Rough woodlouse
