Abstract The terrestrial isopod fauna of Maryland is inferred using the taxonomic literature, internet-based citizen science projects, and original collecting. Twenty-two species are either known or are likely to occur in the state. This includes 17 mostly-European adventive species that comprise the vast majority of records. Of the five expected native species, three occur in or near marine or estuarine littoral habitats and each has yet to be recorded or recorded from only a single locality…

New records of exotic species of Oniscidea (Crustacea: Isopoda) from northern Mexico
TLDR
The exotic oniscideans were recorded from urban, rural and natural (riparian) zones in 15 states of northern Mexico, including the first formal records in Aguascalientes, Chihuahua, Durango, and Zacatecas.
Redescription of Venezillo stuckchensis (Crustacea: Oniscidea: Armadillidae), a terrestrial isopod from the Baja California Peninsula, Mexico
TLDR
This work redescribes V. stuckchensis including the designation of a neotype and paratopotypes using specimens from the type locality and reports this species from 5 additional wetlands of southern BCP in the state of Baja California Sur.
Intersexuality in a natural population of the terrestrial isopod Porcellio scaber
TLDR
This is the first demonstration that intersex phenotypes can arise under natural conditions in P. scaber, a natural population of the isopod Porcellio scaber that expresses both male and female traits.
Soil Invertebrates Generate Microplastics From Polystyrene Foam Debris
TLDR
It is indicated that soil invertebrates may represent a source of microplastics to the environment in places polluted with PS foam trash, and that the condition of macroplastic debris likely affects its palatability to these organisms.
Do pesticide residues have enduring negative effect on macroinvertebrates and vertebrates in fallow rice paddies?
TLDR
Accumulated effects of pesticides on suppressing terrestrial invertebrates during the cultivation period, but diminishing effects of pesticide residues on repressing aquatic invertebrate during the fallow period are suggested.
Seasonal shape variations, ontogenetic shape changes, and sexual dimorphism in a population of land isopod Porcellionides pruinosus: a geometric morphometric study
TLDR
The landmark geometric morphometric technique was able to reveal the seasonal shape variations in terrestrial isopod P. pruinosus and provides information about shape variations between juveniles and adults, as well as about shape sexual dimorphism.
Evolutionary transition to XY sex chromosomes associated with Y-linked duplication of a male hormone gene in a terrestrial isopod
TLDR
Evidence is provided for the co-occurrence of multiple sex chromosome systems within T. rathkei, further highlighting the relevance of terrestrial isopods as models for the study of sex chromosome evolution.
Evolutionary transition to XY sex chromosomes associated with Y-linked duplication of a male hormone gene in a terrestrial isopod.
TLDR
Evidence is provided for the co-occurrence of multiple sex chromosome systems within T. rathkei, further highlighting the relevance of terrestrial isopods as models for the study of sex chromosome evolution.

ABSTRACT A survey of the terrestrial isopods of Plummers Island, Maryland and its immediate vicinity revealed the presence of ten species representing nine genera and seven families. All are believed
Phylogeny of the Terrestrial Isopoda (Oniscidea): a Review
TLDR
It is concluded that phylogenetic analyses down to species level need to be conducted in order to construe a robust phylogeny hypothesis for higher oniscidean taxa.
Patterns of taxonomic diversity among terrestrial isopods
TLDR
An analysis of taxonomic diversity patterns among Oniscidea based on an updated world list of species containing 3,710 species belonging to 527 genera and 37 families (data till April 2014), as well as the relationships between species per genera, species per families, and genera per families.
Establishment of a Mediterranean Isopod (Chaetophiloscia Sicula Verhoeff, 1908) in a North American Temperate Forest
Chaetophiloscia sicula (Oniscidea, Philosciidae) was collected in an urban forest patch in Baltimore, Maryland. The species is indigenous to the northern Mediterranean from Greece to Spain. This is
Demography of some non-native isopods (Crustacea, Isopoda, Oniscidea) in a Mid-Atlantic forest, USA
TLDR
The temporal pattern of sex ratios supported the secondary sex ratio hypothesis and surface activity of both species reflected variability in abiotic stress factors for isopods, such as soil moisture and soil temperature.
Miktoniscus halophilus Blake, M. medcofi (Van Name) and M. morganensis n. Comb., Reconsidered with Notes on New World Species of the Genus (Crustacea, Isopoda, Trichoniscidae)
Species of the trichoniscid genus, Miktoniscus Kesselyak, from the New World are reviewed. Two of them, M. halophilus Blake and M. medcofi (Van Name), are redescribed and are the principal species in
Miktoniscus medcofi (Isopoda, Trichoniscidae) in Texas: a range extension for the genus and species
TLDR
The occurrence of the terrestrial isopod Miktoniscus medcofi from a fen in Real County, Texas, represents a new state record for the species as well as a western range extension for the genus.
Descriptions of New Subspecies of Ligidium elrodii (Packard) comb. nov. With Notes on Other Isopod Crustaceans from Caves in North America (Oniscoidea)
TLDR
Four new subspecies of L. elrodii are described from caves in eastern United States and the general trend towards cave adaptation among the species and subspecies is discussed.

TLDR
Thomas Say in 1818 published the description of a species which he called Philoscia spinosa from near Savannah, Georgia, then a small town in an unde veloped region near the sea, but the species has not been encountered again and the name only has been included in lists of species of oniscideans from the Americas.
