Pill bug - Armadillidium nasatum

Order Isopoda
Family Armadillididae
Very similar to Armadillidium vulgare, the other species of the genus found in the country. It has a rectangular protuberance projected in front of the head, a sort of "nose", called scutellum. It can contract into an almost perfect ball just like A. vulgare.
