I think it's an Arthropod but don't know it's sci name. I want someone identify it.
Thanks lauraMaria, I would also need your help for my Mphil in fresh water crabs, on which i'm working :)
It's about 1.6 cm in length
This is a kind of wood louse, and from the little "tails" at the back, my best guess is that it's in the Porcellio genus. Hopefully that gives you a good starting point to get the ID for this little guy! Nice spotting :)
You might want to check this out also:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hemilepistu...Although you are not quite in the Middle East, you are close to it and by the location this seems to be a dry place.
I don't really know which one is it... there is a list containing 178 of them in the link I sent you.All I know about them is that they are land custacean.
