Description

I found a number of these terrestrial isopods along the Merced river west of Briceburg. They immediately caught my eye as something different because they reflected my headlamp beam and appeared to glow silver. There seemed to be some sort of waxy scale or coating that caused the reflection which rubbed off when I attempted to examine one.
