Product Details

"Autumnal Equinox" is a mutation isolated out of the "orange" strain of Porcellio expansus. To describe the genes at work, it is most likely a form of hypomelanism or reduced pigmentaion; it is not albinism as all members retain dark eyes and the specimens range from a deep chocolate to a light orange color throughout. Originally we had this labeled as "leucistic", but after observing how the gene expresses throughout the population we find this to be an inaccurate term for the mutation.

As with other expansus cultures, they should be offered a fair amount of space to spread out, rotting hardwood, leaves, hiding areas, and 50% moisture throughout the setup.
