Perhaps Diachus? The previous day we saw one of these on fennel, looking bronze in the bright sunshine. This one was in the grass on an overcast day, so didn't glisten as brightly. We think they're the same species.

What is this? This is the largest one, a few inches long. The majority were less than 0.5" long. Found along bay shoreline, congregated under rocks and logs.

Green Sharp Shooter (Draeculacephala minerva) was from a population Rodrigo Almeida at UC Berkeley maintained and the original population came from from insects that were wild-caught in and around Berkeley, CA. The sharp shooter was dissected to remove the bacteriome and then I gently smashed the bacteriome on a slide to release the symbionts. Single bacterial cells were captured with a micromanipulator on an inverted scope. Sulcia cells were amplified and we recovered a full genome back form a single bacterial cell.

According to Garthwaite and Lawson this should be L. gracile. Unlike L. latum it is smooth instead of tuberculate.

Pretty interesting that they were here. Habitat was a dry creek bed that still had moist soil but no standing water. Not sure if it's seasonal in a normal year but unless we get some freak rain storms it seems like it'll probably get pretty toasty in the coming months. How do these isopods handle it? Like other Ligidium I've seen these only seemed to be in the rocky areas. Vegetation was oak / bay woodland, plenty of poison oak too.
