Hi All,

I have started culturing a large selection of foods and I want to get the genera names for the various spring and isopod varieties available. I assume none have been identified to species level and that even the genera names are likely suspect, but if I could at least get the names they are going by in the hobby.

Please add addition varieties in culture if they aren't in my list.

Thanks

Tropical White Sprintails
Tropical Pink Springtails
Temperate White Springtails
Tropical Black Springtails
Micro Springtails
Blue Springtails
Dwarf White Isopods
Dwarf Striped Isopods
Costa Rican Purple Isopods
Spanish Orange Isopods
Giant Canyon Isopods

Most of the temperate springtails out there are Folsomia candida. I have positively ID'd these (at least the ones I have) as we use them quite frequently in soil toxicity assays.

I have seen tropical pinks and whites identified as Sinella sp., temperate blacks as Tomocerus sp., and spanish orange isopods as Porcellio sp.
